In 1912, a third tram railroad was started in Bulloch County, this time by the Shearhouse family. John N. Shearhouse (and partner, George Brinson, the owner of the Midland and several other smaller lines) decided to open a line from Clyo to Claxton. Known to most people as the Sherwood Railroad, some documents listed it as the Shearwood Railroad.
