September 1967 Trains Magazine has nice article by Don Phillips on GARR mixed trains. Some of Forrest Beckum's much used pics, but also some very nice 1960s shots by Victor Hand.

The article in the 1977 Railfan, by the way, is probably the best piece on the Georgia Road ever published by a major magazine. The absolute ultimate best information in the universe about the Georgia Railroad, of course, is the book that Bob himself wrote.

There was an article in the Family Lines Magazine in 1974 that contained a photo of Bryant Mitchell at the dispatcher's console at 4 Hunter Street HQ. it did not have a map showing the location of the "fleet", tho. There was an article in Railfan Magazine with this map in 1977, but no photo of Bryant Mitchell.

Not much help, here.
