The Gulf, Mobile and Northern Railroad (reporting mark GMN) was a railroad in the Southern United States. The first World War had forced government operation upon the company; and in 1919, when it became once more a free agent, it chose Ike Tigrett to charter its new course. On September 13, 1940, it was merged with the Mobile and Ohio Railroad to form the Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad.
At the end of 1925 GM&N operated 466 miles of road and 574 miles of track; that year it reported 419 million ton-miles of revenue freight and 12 million passenger-miles.
