The Georgian was a long distance passenger train operated by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad in conjunction with the Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad. It was operated between St. Louis St. Louis Union Station and Atlanta's Atlanta Union Station with a section operated by the C&EI from Evansville to Chicago's Dearborn Station. From Nashville to Atlanta it operated over the tracks of the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway. With the introduction of this train, this made the C&EI's Chicago-Evansville Whippoorwill train superfluous.
It was begun in 1946 as a streamliner. As a night train, it offered sleeping car and dining car services. In 1968 the L&N Railroad discontinued the Georgian. In its place was an unnamed St. Louis-Evansville train, and an unnamed Evansville-Atlanta train. (The Chicago branch from Evansville eliminated, passengers seeking an L&N route would need to wait several hours at Nashville for a connection to the South Wind.)  The St. Louis-Evansville and the Evansville-Atlanta trains were among the trains that Amtrak chose not to pick up when it assumed long distance operations on May 1, 1971. Since that time Atlanta has had no service heading directly north to Tennessee.
