Mobile & Great Northern

This road's great name concealed the fact that it was intended to cover only the 67 miles between a point on the Tensas River, 22 miles north of Mobile, and the connection with the Alabama & Florida Railroad at Pollard, Alabama. It was chartered in 1856, track laying began in March 1861 and the road was completed that November.

Despite its short length, it was a crucial link in the rail route around the Montgomery to Meridian rail gap.
