FROM BLW...    The SAL Freight Pack!

The Seaboard Air Line Railroad, which styled itself "The Route of Courteous Service"
was an American railroad whose corporate existence extended
from April 14, 1900 until July 1, 1967

The main line of the Seaboard ran from Richmond via Raleigh, North Carolina,
Columbia, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia to Jacksonville, Florida, a
major interchange point for passenger trains bringing travelers to the Sunshine State.
From Jacksonville, Seaboard rails continued to such popular tourist destinations
as Tampa, St. Petersburg, West Palm Beach, and Miami.

Other important Seaboard routes included a line from Jacksonville via
Tallahassee to a connection with the L&N at Chattahoochee, Florida for
through service to New Orleans; a line to Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham,
Alabama connecting with the main line at Hamlet, North Carolina; and a
line from the main at Norlina, North Carolina to Portsmouth, Virginia, the
earliest route of what became the Seaboard.

The "air line" name

"Air line", in the days before air travel became a reality, was a common metaphor for the
shortest distance between two points: a straight line drawn through the air (or on a map),
ignoring natural obstacles. Hence, a number of 19th century railroads used "air line"
in their titles to suggest that their routes were shorter than those of competing roads.

The Seaboard never owned any airplanes. However, in 1940 the railroad
did propose the creation of "Seaboard Airlines," but this idea was struck down by the
Interstate Commerce Commission as violating federal anti-trust legislation.

During a spate of interest in aviation shares on Wall Street following
Charles A. Lindbergh's trans-Atlantic flight in 1927, Seaboard Air Line
shares actually attracted some investor curiosity because of the name's
aviation-related connotations; only after it became evident that
Seaboard Air Line was actually a railroad did investors lose interest.
