The Gulf, Mobile, and Ohio Railroad formed in 1940 when the Mobile and Ohio line merged with the Gulf, Mobile, and Northern. This brochure promotes travel between St. Louis, Missouri, and Mobile, Alabama. Trains stopped in Jackson, Meridian, Laurel, and many places in between. The cost for a seat from New Orleans to Jackson? Seventy-five cents (see page six of the brochure).1
