SR Divisions : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Does anyone have a complete listing of every division (ie, Asheville Division, W-S division, etc) that the SR operated. Even better, does anyone know what divisions were merged into each other to form larger divisions, and the years such conversions took place? Geez, I don't ask for much!!

Prior to the merger of the Southern with the N&W, the Southern had the following divisions: Alabama, Appalachian, Coastal, Crescent, Carolina, Eastern, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennesee, Western.
