Atlantic Short Line Railway

The Atlantic Short Line was chartered Dec. 9, 1892 as successor to the Macon & Atlantic Railway, whose property was sold under foreclosure Nov. 30, 1892. According to Poors 1895 Manual, the ASL was planning to construct a line from Macon to Savannah. The first section built was a 28-mile stretch east from Bruton (now Brewton), completed in 1894. Work was in progress on the remaining section to Stillmore when the ASL failed and entered receivership.

The line was sold to the Central of Georgia and reorganized as the Bruton & Pineora Railroad in 1897.
