The C&C is a short line railroad operating Chattanooga-to-Lyerly (49 miles) on the former Central of Georgia Chattanooga Division.
Until 2009, the C&C also operated Chattanooga-to-Hedges (19 miles) on the former Tennessee, Alabama & Georgia Railway. This line, owned by Norfolk Southern, is currently inactive.
Georgia DOT purchased the Lyerly branch from Norfolk Southern in 1998 and began working with the C&C to increase freight traffic over the line. The Hedges branch remained in NS ownership.
The Lyerly branch originally continued south to Krannert Junction in west Rome, but Norfolk Southern abandoned this section before leasing the remainder to the C&C. The tracks on this 15.2-mile section were taken up in 1993.
The C&C was acquired by Genesee & Wyoming in 2008.
