Excerpt from Great Southern Railway: A Trunk Line, Between the North and the Tropics, to Within Ninety Miles of Havana, Connecting at the Nearest Possible Point With the West Indies, Central and South America The Great Southern Railway Company was incorporated by an Act of the Legislature of the State of Georgia, approved October 17th, 1870, with general and special powers to construct and operate a railroad from Millen to the St. Mary's River, there to connect with the road constructed in Florida. In connection with existing roads, it forms a direct through line between all the Southern, Western and Northern States and the West Indies, Central America, and South America. The Great Southern Railway Company was incorporated by an Act of the Legislature of the State of Florida, approved February 19th, 1870, with all the general powers usually conferred upon railroad corporations, and with special powers to construct and operate a railroad from the St. Mary's River, on the northern boundary of Florida, to the most southerly available harbor of the State, and to own and operate, in connection with the road, and as an integral part of the Company's line, steamships and other sea-going vessels to Cuba and the other West India Islands and South America. The two Companies were consolidated on the l0th day of November, 1874, under the name of the Great Southern Railway Company, (consolidated.) The length of the road in Georgia is 200 miles; in Florida, 550 miles, a total of 750 miles of main line, with a branch of 126 miles to Tampa Bay on the west side of the peninsula of Florida.

Excerpt from Excursion Guide of the Virginia Midland Railway: The Short-Line Through-Car Route Between the North and South, the Virginia Springs, Western North Carolina and North Georgia Summer Resorts The aim of this publication is to give the reader, in brief space and compact form, some idea of what the Virginia Midland Railway presents in its course from the capital of the nation to its terminus at Danville, on the border of North Carolina. First, to show that the Midland Railway is the natural and proper outlet of that huge volume of travel which the Baltimore & Ohio and the Pennsylvania Railroads pour into Washington City. Second, to demonstrate (as the schedules appended to this volume prove) that it is the Short Line, par excellence, of travel traffic from North to South, and vice versa. Third, to establish beyond dispute, that no other route to the great watering places of Virginia and the sublime scenery of Western North Carolina can compete with the Virginia Midland Railway. Fourth, to place in clear light before the reader of whatever character tourist, health-seeker, investor, miner, farmer - the attractive nature of a route which, from beginning to end, pursues the beautiful and airy uplands that lie at the base of the Blue Ridge and other Virginia mountains. The physical features of this region so blessed of heaven, its history, its battlefields, its water-courses, its farming lands, its pastures and meadows, its mines, minerals and ores, its towns and villages, its industries, its orchards and its vineyards - in brief, all that pertains to its past and present, or at least so much of it as may be compressed into a half an hour's reading on the train or at the station, will herein be found. From Washington we go to Alexandria, there to muse a while amidst the ancient churches and storied dwellings that tell of Washington and his compeers.
