Mississippi Export Railroad

Mississippi shortline

The 42-mile Gulf Coast shortline that is today known as the Mississippi Export Railroad has a long corporate history under a variety of names. First organized in 1894 as the Moss Point & Pascagoula, ever-expanding sales and additions produced the W. Denny Log Rod, the Pascagoula & Northern, the Pascagoula, Moss Point & Northern, the Alabama & Mississippi, and finally -- as incorporated in 1922 -- the pike became the Mississippi Export and was halved in length from 85 miles. Today the MSE interchanges with the Canadian National at Evanston, Ms and the CSX at Pascagoula. The engine house and offices are located in Moss Point.
