Headquarters

Organized in 1870, the Atlanta & Richmond Air-Line combined the Georgia Air Line Railway and the Air Line Railroad Company of South Carolina under president Algernon S. Buford. The line was complete by 1873 but went broke the next year when it was re-organized into the Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railway.

It later became part of the Southern Railway.
