Taylorsville to Laurel, MS
This Illinois Central branch line from Saratoga, MS, runs over to Mize and stops between Mize and Taylorsville. It was originally the Gulf & Ship Island Railroad. The line beyond Taylorsville was removed in about 1990, and ran through Summerland, Gitano, SoSo and ended in Laurel. This photo depicts part of the line that was removed just north of Taylorsville.

The old IC line can still be found in Taylorsville, MS, adjacent to what appears to be the old passenger/freight station on the right. Photo by Paul McGuffin, October 2010.
