This is a group in Griffin, Georgia that operates public motorcar rides on a disused portion of the former Southern Railway line that was used by FDR to get to Warm Springs, Georgia for his paralysis therapy. They operate about six miles of track and also have three steam locomotives on the property: SP/T&NO 4-6-0 #319, a former Pullman saddletanker from Atlanta, and the dismantled Louisiana Cypress 2-6-2 #1.

At lease one locomotive can be seen with Google
Teamon Road, between Bar-H Road and Smoak Drive Griffin GA
Looks like a cut field with the loco in the middle of the field. Could not see anything else

All still sitting in a field rotting away according to Google maps and a few Facebook posts from within the last couple of years.

Basically the whole outfit in stuck in limbo because its in the hands of a Looney Tune that if you find his posts on Facebook is clearly a certain kind of "special". Just hunt for Roosevelt Railroad on Facebook and you'll run across him quickly. Take that old coot with a vintage car in his yard with a tree growing through it whose "going to restore it someday" kind of crazy and turn it up to 11 and you'll get the idea.
