I have added this rare piece of the Muscogee Railroad Co. to my inventory for sale or trade. It is dated 1859. Cox shows no examples in his database.

History: Chartered in 1845 it ran for 50 miles between Columbus to Butler Georgia. Construction started in 1847. The company merged with the Southwestern Railroad in 1856 but continued to use it's old name.
