The Illinois Central Gulf Railroad was formed on August 10, 1972 with the merger of the Illinois Central Railroad and the Gulf Mobile & Ohio Railroad. Mississippi shortline railroads Fernwood Columbia & Gulf, Bonhomie & Hattiesburg Southern and Columbus & Greenville were also included in the merger.

By the mid-1980's the railroad had abandoned many lines and began selling off other lines to such new operators such as Chicago, Missouri & Western Ry, Chicago Central & Pacific RR, MidSouth Rail Corporation, and Gulf & Mississippi RR.

In 1988 the railroad's parent company, IC Industries, changed it's name to Whitman Corporation (which later became PepsiCo), and the railroad dropped "Gulf" from the name and once again became Illinois Central Railroad on February 29, 1988. The new IC was purchased by Canadian National Railroad on February 11, 1998.
