Columbus - Richland, 1955 map

The Columbus-Richland line was built in 1886-90 as the Columbus Southern Railway, an 88-mile railroad from Columbus to Albany. At Richland it crossed the Savannah, Americus & Montgomery. In 1895-96, both of these were included in the new Georgia & Alabama Railway, which became a part of the Seaboard in 1900.
