Alabama & Florida Railway Company

Alabama shortline

At its peak length, the Alabama & Florida Railway Company operated a 78 mile stretch of shortline trackage in south central Alabama. From a connection with the CSX at Georgiana, Alabama, the line stretched eastward through Opp and on to Geneva. The trackage was Seaboard Coast Line at the time it was acquared by Peter Clausen in 1986 and first operated as a shortline. Commodities included pulpwood, chemicals, plastics, and agricultural products. In 2001, the Alabama & Florida Railway, under the control of Pioneer Railcorp, sold a 33-mile segment of its track from Georgiana, AL to Andalusia, AL, to the Three Notch Railroad (TNR), which is owned by Gulf and Ohio Railways.
