Omaha, Abilene and Wichita Railway
The Omaha, Abilene and Wichita Railway was organized on July 7, 1885 as an extension of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway. It went from St. Joseph, Missouri through Topeka, Kansas to Wichita, then connecting to Beatrice, Nebraska. The franchises of the company were sold to the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska Railroad, a newly created Rock Island subsidiary, in 1886.
