Southern Belt Railway

The Southern Belt Railway was incorporated in Georgia in 1904 to build a rail line about three miles long to the north and west of downtown Atlanta to make a connection between Southern Railway lines entering the city. At the time Southern had lines circling downtown on the north and east, from Howell to Armour to Inman Park, but improvements were needed on the west and northwest sides.

See Atlanta BeltLine (and Belt Lines) for more information.
