    While researching the railroad history of Aberdeen, MS, I came across this 1903 map of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad.'s_Mobile_and_Ohio_Railroad.jpg

    Upon zooming in, I discovered the Carrollton Shortline from Reform to Aliceville. The extension from Carrollton to Aliceville wasn't opened until 1903, about 3 1/2 years before John Taylor Cochrane joined the CSL with the Tombigbee Valley RR to form the the Alabama Tennessee and Northern. This is the first and only map I've seen of the Carrollton Shortline RR prior to the formation of the AT&N. I thought it was a glimps of SLSF history worth sharing. - Brandon
