Bruce Junction to Bruce

The Mississippi and Skuna Valley Railroad

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

Note: This route is not officially abandoned yet and is proceeding through the abandonment process of the Surface Transportation Board. Please see the STB filings/decisions below for more information.

The Mississippi and Schoona Valley Railroad was chartered in 1925 to build a line from Bruce Junction (and a connection with an Illinois Central Railroad (ex-Grenada Railway) line, now abandoned) to Bruce, MS to serve a hardwood mill located there.

The railroad was renamed to the Mississippi and Skuna Valley Railroad, which filed for abandonment of the entire line in 2011. Yalobusha County, Mississippi, has created the Mississippi and Skuna Valley Rail-to-Trail group in order to use the right-of-way for trail use.
