Dates of Operation: 1982-1986 (4 years)
The Seaboard System railroad was only made as a temporary railroad. It was a name holder for all of the railroads from its predecessor: SCL/L&N. Also known as the Family Lines System. This included the Louisville & Nashville, Seaboard Coast Line (which had absorbed Seaboard Air Line (SAL) & Atlantic Coast Line (ACL), Clinchfield, Atlanta & West-Point, The Georgia Railroad, South Carolina Pacific Railway, Louisville, Henderson, & St. Louis Railway, Gainesville Midland, and the Columbia, Newberry, & Laurens Railway.
Seaboard did not run any passenger trains because by this time the government-funded National Railroad Passenger Corporation known as Amtrak was created in 1971 and assumed passenger operations.
