The Jamestown, Franklin & Clearfield Railroad was formed by merger, under contract dated January 26, 1909, of the Franklin and Clearfield Railroad Company, Jamestown and Franklin Railroad Company, Central Trunk Railway Company and Jackson Coal Railroad Company, consolidation effective March 8, 1909. It was subsequently leased to The Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway Company, in perpetuity, from April 1, 1909.
The Franklin and Clearfield Railroad Company was chartered June 19, 1902, to construct a road from Franklin, Pennsylvania, to Clearfield, a distance of 111 miles. The Jamestown and Franklin Railroad Company was formed by consolidation, under agreement of August 14, 1871, of the Jamestown and Franklin Railroad Company and the Junction Railroad Company. The former was chartered April 5, 1862, and the latter was incorporated September 19, 1870. The original Jamestown and Franklin Railroad Company was leased to the Cleveland Painesville and Ashtabula Railroad Company on March 21, 1864, and the consolidated company was operated by The Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway Company under lease of January 9, 1885, until it was merged into the Jamestown Franklin and Clearfield Railroad Company.
