Also see . . . Darien and Western Railroad , Wikipedia entry. In 1894 the Darien and Western Railroad was established to take over operations of the Darien Short Line which had gone bankrupt. The D&W operated a 32-mile (51 km) line between Darien and Middleton, Georgia, USA, beginning in 1895 and then as far as Ludowici, Georgia, in 1904. It became part of a multi-railroad merger in 1906 that resulted in the Georgia Coast and Piedmont Railroad. (Submitted on September 8, 2008, by Mike Stroud of Bluffton, South Carolina.)
