The AN Railway, LLC is one of several short line railroad companies owned by the Genesee and Wyoming Inc. It operates between Port St. Joe, Florida and a connection with CSX's PA and Tallahassee Subdivisions at Chattahoochee, Florida, with a short spur to Apalachicola, Florida. The railroad operates approximately 96 miles of track.


The Apalachicola Northern Railroad was chartered on April 7, 1903. Construction began on March 21, 1905, and trains began running north from Apalachicola in 1907. The extension to Port St. Joe was completed on May 10, 1910.

The company operated in receivership on three separate occasions: July 1907 to October 1908, May 1914 to February 1916 and May 1932 to December 1936.

The company came under ownership of Alfred I. du Pont in 1933, along with the entire town of Port St. Joe. The railroad's largest customer, the St. Joe Paper Company mill in Port St. Joe, was owned by the DuPont trust from 1936 to 1996. [ Humanities & Social Sciences Online: "Green Empire: The St. Joe Company and the Remaking of Florida's Panhandle" by Kathryn Ziewitz and June Wiaz-2004 ISBN 978-0-8130-2697-8] ] On September 30, 1940, Edward Ball, who managed the du Pont trust properties, transferred control of the railroad to the St. Joe Paper Company.cite book|author=Lewis, Edward A.|year=1996|title=American Shortline Railway Guide|publisher=Kalmbach Books|isbn=0-89024-290-9] When the paper company was sold in 1996, ownership of the railroad was returned to the St. Joe Company.

Rail Management Corporation bought the line from the St. Joe Company on September 1, 2002. It was renamed the AN Railway at that time.cite web|url=|section=History|accessdate=2007-11-25|title=AN Railway LLC retrieved from archive|publisher=AN Railway LLC]

The AN Railway was included in this purchase. As of 2007, the railroad continues operations as part of Genessee and Wyoming's Southern Region.
