The KCS system in the U.S. sprawls across nine Midwestern states with
headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri. The system reaches into Illinois
to Jacksonville, Springfield, and East St. Louis. The traditional
southern main line moves traffic to Dallas, New Orleans, and Port
Arthur, Texas. Later additions carry KCS rails east through Monroe,
Louisiana, and Jackson, Mississippi, to Meridian and Artesia,
Mississippi, and later additions touch Tennessee at Counce. Southern
Texas and Mexico-bound traffic rolls from Beaumont through Houston to
Corpus Christi and Laredo, where KCS rails continue deep into Mexico.
This volume chronicles KCS east from Kansas City across the former
Gateway Western and south from Kansas City to the end of the Shreveport
Subdivision at Shoreline, Louisiana.
