Historical Note

The Wabash Railway Company was formed in 1915 through a reorganization of the Wabash Railroad Company, itself a product of an 1889 reorganization of predecessor lines. The railroad served the upper mid-central United States, with primary connections in Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Toledo and Buffalo. In 1942, the company's name reverted to the Wabash Railroad Company. In 1960, the line was leased by the Norfolk & Wetern Railway and eventually purchased by Norfolk Southern in 1991.
