Historical Note

The Tennessee, Alabama & Georgia Railroad was created in 1911 as a reorganization of the failed Chattanooga Southern Railway. Placed in receivership in 1922, the TA&G was purchased and its name changed to the Tennessee, Alabama & Georgia Railway. The 92-mile line spanned from Chattanooga, Tennessee to Gadsden, Alabama and was purchased by the Southern Railway in 1971; a northern portion of the line today (2009) is leased from Norfolk Southern and operated by the Chattooga and Chickamauga Railway.

Scope and Contents

Hedges, the report tabulates statistics on the company's operations, including workforce, equipment, tonnage hauled, income and expenditures.
