There have been two uses of Columbus and Greenville Railway, both for the same rail line.

The first Columbus and Greenville Railway (reporting mark C&G) was formed by the sale of the Southern Railway operated Southern Railway in Mississippi, to local interests. It continued independent operations until 1972 when it was bought by the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad.

The second Columbus and Greenville Railway (reporting mark CAGY) was founded in 1974 and began operations in 1975 over divested Illinois Central Gulf Railroad trackage across the state of Mississippi. Its terminals, as the name implies, are Columbus and Greenville, Mississippi. The company once specialized in transporting wood and paper products to and from local factories.The company's traffic base has expanded to include bricks, plastic products, feed grains for catfish and swine, finished and raw steel, and biodiesel as well as cotton and rice products. The company runs six trains a day, two between Greenwood and Greenville, two out of Columbus and two at the Severcorr steel mill between Columbus and Artesia. In 2001 operations between West Point and Greenwood were suspended.

The majority owner of the Columbus and Greenville is CAGY Industries, which also owns the Luxapalila Valley Railroad and the Chattooga and Chickamauga Railway.

In June 2008, CAGY Industries was purchased by Genesee & Wyoming Inc.
