Albany, Florida and Northern Railway

The Albany, Florida and Northern Railway (AF&N) was chartered in 1889 and built a railway between Albany and Cordele, Georgia, beginning operation in 1891. The following year the line was leased to the Savannah, Americus and Montgomery Railway (SA&M), who was responsible for obtaining the charter to begin with.[1]
