It initially opened in 1897 between West Point, GA to Riverview, AL then extended shortly afterward to Jester, AL. 1908 saw an extension to Standing Rock, AL to connect with the Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Railroad and then a connection at Bleeker, AL with the Central of Georgia Railroad occurred in 1916.
