Carrabelle, Tallahassee and Georgia Railroad
The Carrabelle, Tallahassee and Georgia Railroad was incorporated on January 5, 1891. It was projected along a route extending from Carrabelle through Tallahassee and northward to the Georgia-Florida line. The railroad was incorporated with a capital stock of $1,000.000 and a land grant of 206,370.30 acres (835.1510 km2). The company owned 3 locomotives and 50 assorted railroad cars.
In 1906, the C.T. & G. was sold to the Georgia, Florida and Alabama Railway.
Florida state law chapter 4264, approved May 22, 1893, granted land to the company that had formerly been granted to the Thomasville, Tallahassee and Gulf Railroad Company (on February 7, 1883). To obtain the land grants, the railroad would have to be finished between Tallahassee and Thomasville by January 1, 1895.
