N. C. & St. L. Ry.
The Nashville, Chattanooga, & St. Louis Railway operated in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia and was the first railroad to operate in Tennessee. The Louisville and Nashville, one of the greatest southern railroads, took over the NC & StL in 1880. The NC&StL operated independently for years before ultimately merging with the L&N in 1957. The railroad never reached its namesake city of St. Louis.
