Why The Name Railway Freight?
1969, H.D. Neal opened Railway Freight and sold just about everything
he could get delivered via the railway. He carried new and discontinued
merchandise, from building supplies and groceries to furniture
and appliances...literally everything!
After Several years, H.D. Neal started focusing on furniture and
appliances but the name remained the same. In 1980, W.T. Neal
bought his brothers business and Railway Freight had become well
known in Albany Georgia as the place to go for quality furniture
and the name had to stay. As the business continued to grow W.T.
Neal and two of his sons, Jeff and Steve Neal expanded to a second
location in Americus Georgia.
Jeff and Steve took over Railway Freight in the early 90's. Since
then, the business has continued to grow and a third store was
introduced in Tifton Georgia. Even though the merchandise is no
longer delivered by train, Railway Freight remains one of the
oldest independent furniture stores in Albany Georgia and is easily
the largest furniture warehouse showroom in South Georgia with
enough furniture to fill more than 2 acres in stock and ready
to take home. It has been and always will be our goal to offer
Southwest Georgia name brand quality furniture at low warehouse
