Pensacola & Georgia

The road was chartered in 1856 to build east from Pensacola. It started construction in Tallahassee and eventually met the west-building Florida, Atlantic & Gulf Central Railroad at Alligator Town (renamed Lake City), Florida in December 1860. The road also built west from Tallahassee almost to Quincy, stopping construction in 1863 at Gee's Turn Out, 4 miles short of the town. The Confederate government eventually forced Florida to allow the building of a connection between this line and the Atlantic & Gulf Railroad in Lawton, Georgia so that Florida troops and cattle could be moved northward. The road was built to the Georgia border (using rail removed from the Florida Railroad), where it met the Georgia section in March, 1865.

This road controlled the Tallahassee Railroad and operated it in conjunction with the Pensacola & Georgia.
