NP, GI 1/18/1862

From the Gainesville Independent (Gainesville, Ala.)
January 18, 1862
   The cars {Mississippi, Gainesville & Tuscaloosa RR} now run to Messrs. Bell and McMahon's plantations, about two miles from town and track laying will be suspended for 30 days to come. The "Force" of the road will be actively employed for the next few weeks in repairing new track recently laid and in finishing the grading between the present terminus and Gainesville. With favorable weather the directory think they can bring the road to town by the first of March.
