The Chattanooga, Rome and Southern Railroad was formed out of a reorganization of the Chattanooga, Rome and Columbus Railroad in 1897 and three years later, it purchased the Chattanooga and Durham Railroad. Then in 1901 the CR&S was purchased by the Central of Georgia Railway.

In the year 1898 the Chattanooga, Rome and Southern Railroad issued common stock in the amount of $1,600,000, a huge amount in 1898 money. The shares sold at 100 dollars each. An interesting note is that these shares were apparently popular, since the Bank of Liverpool in London bought 10 shares, according to stock certificate number A949, of June 10, 1898.
