History by Tony Howe:

The Minter City, Southern & Western Railroad was incorporated on __, and took over the railroad operated by Hoyt & Woodin Mfg. Co. The MCS&W was operated as a subsidiary of the Y&MV. Primary traffic for the railroad was from several sawmills operating west of Minter City, as well as a cotton gin at Avant's.  The ICC gave its approval to abandon the MCS&W on Dec. 5, 1932.
