Gulf & Mississippi Railroad was created in 1985 and purchased several rail lines from Illinois Central Gulf Railroad and began service on July 10, 1985. Most of these lines were former Gulf Mobile & Ohio RR lines in Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. The company was sold to MidSouth Rail, another ICG spin-off, on April 14, 1988, who formed a subsidiary company called SouthRail to take over the lines.
