Wiregrass Central Railroad

Alabama shortline

The Wiregrass Central Railroad is a shortline railroad operating 20 miles of branchline trackage from a CSX connection at Newton to Enterprise, Alabama, via the south side of Fort Rucker. The company, once subsidiary of Gulf & Ohio Railways, began operations in 1987 on a former Atlantic Coast Line, later Seaboard System branch. The line was later purchased from Gulf & Ohio by RailAmerica, then purchased again by Genesee & Wyoming. Industrial customers include Pilgrim's Pride, Wayne Farms, and the Sessions Company. Primary commodities include peanuts, peanut oil, corn, soy, and grass seed.
