The Atlanta, Birmingham & Coast Railroad
The AB&C was controlled by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, which owned a majority of the stock. In 1944 it reported 763 million net ton-miles of revenue freight and 33 million passenger-miles; at the end of that year it operated 639 miles of road and 836 miles of track.
In 1946 the AB&C was bought by the ACL and then became the latter company's Western Division. According to historical sources there are no surviving AB&C 2-8-2 "Mikado"-type locomotives.
