Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Railway


Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Railway

The Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic Railway was formed in 1914 as a reorganization of the Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic "Railroad", which had been created in 1905 to purchase the Atlantic and Birmingham Railway and extend its track into Birmingham, Alabama, from an end point at Montezuma. Financial troubles forced the railroad to reorganize under the name Atlanta, Birmingham and Coast Railroad in 1926.

The building originally used as offices and passenger terminal for the AB&A in Atlanta are located at the corner of Fairlie and Walton Streets in downtown Atlanta. They are presently used as offices for the Fulton County Department of Families and Children's Services. The upper facade of the building retains the "Atlanta, Birmingham & Atlantic Railroad" stonework on two sides.
