The Sparks, Moultrie & Gulf Railway built a rail line between Tifton and Moultrie in 1897. It was purchased in 1901 and renamed the Tifton & Moultrie Railroad.
Between those two places the line ran parallel to the Tifton, Thomasville & Gulf Railroad, which constructed a railroad from Tifton to Thomasville in 1900. The TT&G was intended to be a common carrier, while the T&M was primarily a logging road.
In 1903, the T&M notified the Railroad Commission of Georgia that it had discontinued common carrier service.
