The Kansas Southwestern Railway (reporting mark KSW) was a railroad in the U.S. state of Kansas. It was merged into a sister railroad company, the Central Kansas Railway, in 2000. The Central Kansas Railway was later sold to Watco Companies and became the Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad. KSW had a small roster of former Grand Trunk Western Railroad EMD GP9s, 4544, 4557, 4912 and 4916. Most were painted in a red, white and blue paint scheme.
