The Six Flags Railroad was the first attraction built at Six Flags Over Georgia, opening before the park in 1967 and offering guests a sneak preview of the park as it was still under construction. The loop circled the park (with the park eventually growing beyond the railroad) and features two stations on opposite sides.
     
The Engine House is located on the main track loop with two stalls for parking the locomotives under cover for the off-season.

The Engine House is located at the Marthasville Station.
     
Rabun Gap station is located on the opposite side of the park from Marthasville Station, and is named for a mountain town in the northeast corner of Georgia.
     
     
The Six Flags Railroad featured two locomotives custom built by Bob Harpur who also helped build the locomotives for Walt Disney World. The two engines were named the General and Texas after the engines from the "Great Locomotive Chase" of the Civil War. The General was the Union locomotive, and traditionally bares the American Flags in the park, while the Texas bares the Confederate flag.  Both engines are traditional 4-4-0 and were originally oil fired steam locomotives with custom trains. In the mid-2000's the engines were converted to diesel drives with the motors located in the tenders.
