The Cincinnati Southern Railway was an important north and south connection that, when completed in 1880, covered 337 miles from Cincinnati, Ohio to Chattanooga, Tennessee. At the end of the civil war it became apparent that a new railroad connection to the south was necessary. The passenger and freight railroad was funded by the Cincinnati municipal government and traversed Kentucky and Tennessee west of the Appalachian Mountain region. It was now possible to connect via the Cincinnati Southern Railway with the Western & Atlantic, the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis, the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia, or the Memphis & Charleston railroads at the railroad's terminus Chattanooga.
