Pearl River Valley Railroad

Mississippi shortline

Perhaps notable for being one of Mississippi's shortest shortlines, the Pearl River Valley Railroad Company operated 4.69 miles of trackage from an interchange with the Norfolk Southern (ex Southern Rwy) at Nicholson, Ms, to Goodyear. Traffic was light and included forest products and chemicals. Incorporated in 1917 to build as far north as Columbia, Ms, the little pike only ever made it as far as Crosby -- 25 miles.
