HISTORY by Tony Howe: Shops was the name given by the railroad of the yard and shops jointly used by the A&V and NO&NE and successor companies about a mile west of the depot in downtown Meridian. Southern Railway moved the location of Shops to milepost 5 south of Key Field to designate the beginning of yard limits by the late 1960's.
