The West Point Route was a fondly remembered southern system which connected Atlanta with Montgomery, Alabama.  The name itself was actually a marketing term only used by the Atlanta & West Point (A&WP) and Western Railway of Alabama (WRoA).  The two companies met at West Point, Georgia and for many years were under the Georgia Railroad & Banking Company's control, which connected Atlanta with Augusta and Macon.  All three got their start handling agricultural-related traffic, transitioned to manufacturing and merchandise, and then spent later years as successful bridge lines.  From an early period they were jointly owned by the Louisville & Nashville and Atlantic Coast Line, remaining subsidiaries until the 1980's.  During a flurry of mergers beginning in the 1960's their identity slowly disappeared.  First, the Seaboard Coast Line was created and then all railroads under SCL's control fell under the marketing name, "Family Lines System."  Finally, they vanished into the Seaboard System and CSX Transportation.  Today, the West Point Route continues to play an important role under CSX.
