Guide to the Dixie Depot Collection

Record Group 145

Date Span: ca.1908-1985

Extent:
  ca. 30 cu ft.

Historical Sketch:  In 1907, the Atlantic Coast Line Railway (ACL) built a passenger and freight depot in the “Dixie” district of Dothan, Alabama, approximately at the intersection of St. Andrews St. and Powell St., near downtown.  This building is adjacent to the “Standpipe,” a pipe-shaped water tower bearing the words, “City of Dothan.”  This station served the ACL and its successors, the Seaboard Atlantic Line and CSX, until it closed ca. 1984.  CSX gave the depot to the City of Dothan, which in turn gave it to Dothan Landmarks Foundation.  In 2004, Dothan Landmarks Foundation returned the depot to the city’s Wiregrass Transportation division which had received a grant to remodel the depot as its headquarters.  In April 2004, the Archives of Wiregrass History and Culture worked with Dothan Landmarks Foundation to acquire and preserve these depot records.
The ACL created operational divisions that were responsible to the Superintendent of Terminals at the Jacksonville, FL, hub.  At the Dixie Depot, those divisions reflected in the surviving records were the Terminal Superintendent (Station Master), the Trainmaster, the Yardmaster, and the Property Protection Department (which also reported separately to the Acting Chief of Property Protection at ACL headquarters).

Scope/Content:  Collection documents activity of the various divisions of the ACL depot in Dothan, AL, 1908-ca. 1985, though most of the materials reflect the period the mid-1950s to the late 1980s.  The collection is composed of files from the offices of Station Master, Train Master and Road Master, as well as files from the Property Protection Division, railroad police. The Station Master’s files cover his responsibilities as senior officer of the railroad station and include office files, shipment/freight claims, operation and safety rules, equipment/specification files, labor agreements, and personnel records. The Train Master’s files cover his duties to the terminals under his jurisdiction, including personnel, and include office files, bulletins, conductor’s reports, and professional diaries/calendars/logbooks/notepads. The Road Master dealt with larger tracts of territory and was responsible for all trains and personnel within; his files include office files, track inspection reports, agreements and contracts, reports of materials used, and checkrolls. The Property Protection Division was essentially the railroad police and was in charge of the safety of passengers and freight passing through their jurisdiction; files include office files, general subject files, and professional diaries/calendars/logbooks/notepads. There are also two series which did not merge with existing categories: Artifacts contains three-dimensional objects retain as visual aids, and Miscellaneous holds photographs, blueprints, programs and articles.  Some files have been restricted by the Wiregrass Archives staff due to privacy concerns.
