The Alabama and Gulf Coast Railway reporting mark|AGR is one of several Class III short-line railroad companies owned by RailAmerica, Inc. It operates from the Pensacola, Florida export terminals, west of downtown, north to Columbus, Mississippi, with trackage rights along BNSF Railway to Amory, Mississippi. A branch uses trackage rights along Norfolk Southern from Kimbrough, Alabama west and south to Mobile, Alabama, with separate trackage at the end of the line in Mobile.

History

The line north from Pensacola, Florida to Kimbrough, Alabama was owned by BNSF Railway, and was sold to the Alabama and Gulf Coast Railway in late 1997, with operations beginning September 22, 1997. At the same time, the AGCR acquired trackage rights over an unknown BNSF line.

BNSF now has trackage rights over the AGCR south to Kimbrough.
