L&N Asks Permission to Close Ramhurst Station, 1941

From The Chatsworth Times
May 22, 1941

Railroad Asks to Discontinue
Ramhurst Caretaker

The Louisville & Nashville Railroad Company has made application to the Georgia Public Service Commission to discontinue its caretaker at Ramhurst, Georgia, on the line between Atlanta and Knoxville, for the reason that the revenue obtained at this point does not justify the continuance of a caretaker, the total freight and passenger revenue for the six-months period ended December 31, 1940, amounted to only $10.84, whereas the wages of the caretaker amounted to $60.

This application has been assigned for hearing before the Commission.
