Atlanta & Charlotte Air-Line Railway

The Atlanta and Charlotte Air-Line Railway resulted from an 1877 reorganization of the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway. In 1881 the A&CAL was leased to the Richmond and Danville Railroad. In 1894, along with the R&D itself, it became a part of the Southern Railway.
