HISTORY by Gil Hoffman:

The Tombigbee Valley Railroad was a reorganization on March 5, 1904, of the Tombigbee & Norhern Railway, which was 36-inch gauge. The new company immediately converted the line to standard gauge and abandoned the section from Nannahubba Bluffs to Calvert, AL. The Tombigbee Valley RR became part of the Alabama, Tennessee & Northern Railroad on May 1, 1913.
