* 1882 - Renamed to the Carolina, Cumberland Gap & Chicago Railroad in October of 1882.

+ 1882 - February of 1882, chartered as the merger of three South Carolina Railroads:

- Anderson & Easley Railroad
- Atlantic & French Broad Railroad
- Edgefield, Trenton & Aiken Railroad

One source asserts that the Savannah Valley Railroad was also pulled into this line, but most sources agree that the Savannah Valley Railroad was pulled into the Port Royal & Western Carolina Railroad in 1886. It very possible that both happened.
