The Atlantic Coast Line (ACL) and Seaboard Air Line (SAL) were two great Southeastern USA Railroads. Long in competition, they joined forces in 1967 to form Seaboard Coast Line Railroad. Acquiring the Piedmont and Northern RR shortly after, headquarters were in both Richmond, VA and Jacksonville, FL. The ACL with double track lines contributed greatly to Florida's economic growth and population, while the SAL hauled produce and goods through the entire South.

In 1983 the SCL became Seaboard System RR after a merger with the Louisville and Nashville RR and Clinchfield RR. For some years prior, the SCL and L&N had been under common ownership and the company's railroads were known as the Family Lines System which consisted of the L&N, SCL, Clinchfield and West Point Routes. During this time, the railroads adopted the same paint schemes but continued to operate as separate railroads. In 1980, Family Lines System and Chessie System combined, evolving as Seaboard System and in 1986 finally became CSX Transportation. Here's two hoppers from the CSX past that would be comfortable in a consist with a myriad of Eastern USA rolling stock!
