Chattanooga, Rome & Southern Railway
When the Chattanooga, Rome and Columbus Railroad encountered severe financial problems in 1897, it was sold to Simon Borg and Company and reorganized as the Chattanooga, Rome and Southern Railway.
In 1900 the CR&S purchased the Chattanooga and Durham Railroad, a 17-mile road that ran west from Chickamauga to coal mines atop Lookout Mountain.
On May 16, 1901, the CR&S was sold to the Central of Georgia.
