SEABOARD COAST LINE RAILROAD

The Seaboard Coast Line was a result of the merger between the ACL and the SAL in 1967 under the control of Seaboard Coast Line Industries. The SCLI was a combination of the merger of of the ACL and SAL in 1967 and consisted of the SCL, Clinchfield, Atlanta & West Point and the Western Railway of Alabama. For a time all roads maintained their own paint schemes. In November 1980 the CSX Corporation was formed from the Chessie System and the SCLI System roads. In January 1983 the Seaboard System was formed from the 5 roads making up the SCLI System.
