Columbus Tap

The road was chartered in February 1860. The 3-mile long road was intended to connect Columbus, Texas to the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos & Colorado RR. The connection would be in Alleytown and required a ferry across the Colorado River until a bridge could be built in the future. The road was completed in 1864 (after the Government provided the iron); the bridge, well after the war. The road had no rolling stock and was serviced by the B. B., B. & C. RR.
