The Carolina, Atlantic & Western Railroad was chartered in 1914 as a consolidation of the North & South Carolina Railway and the South Carolina Western Railway. In 1915, the Carolina, Atlantic & Western Railroad acquired the Charleston & Southern Railway and the Georgetown & Western Railroad, took control of the Charlotte, Monroe & Columbia Railroad, and completed an extension from Andrews to Charleston, South Carolina. Thus, at the end of 1915, the railroad owned 328 miles of track from Hamlet, NC to Charleston, SC.

Later in 1915, this road was absorbed into the Seaboard Air Line Railway.
