The Chester, Greenwood and Abbeville Railroad was a South Carolina railroad company chartered in the late 19th century.

The Chester, Greenwood and Abbeville Railroad was Chartered by the South Carolina General Assembly in 1885.[1]

A year later, the company's name was changed to the Georgia, Carolina and Northern Railway. The goal was to construct a line from Monroe, North Carolina, to Atlanta, Georgia.[2] Construction on the line began in 1887 in North Carolina.[3]

In 1901 the line was formally merged into the Seaboard Air Line Railway.[4]
