KANSAS, OKLAHOMA AND GULF RAILWAY COMPANY OF TEXAS

KANSAS, OKLAHOMA AND GULF RAILWAY COMPANY OF TEXAS. The Kansas, Oklahoma and Gulf Railway Company of Texas was chartered on March 28, 1910, as the Missouri, Oklahoma and Gulf Railway Company of Texas. The name was changed on April 2, 1921. The company operated nearly nine miles of line from the Red River near Carpenter's Bluff to Denison as well as terminal trackage at Denison. At the Red River the KO&GT connected with the Kansas, Oklahoma and Gulf Railway Company, thus forming a through route from Denison to Baxter Springs, Kansas. In 1926 the KO&GT was classified as a Class II line by the Railroad Commission and owned one locomotive. That year the line received $4,054 in passenger revenue, $192,962 in freight revenue, and $249 in other revenue. In 1952 the KO&GT earned $259,392, almost all from freight. In 1964 the Kansas, Oklahoma and Gulf system was merged into the Texas and Pacific Railway Company, and the Texas trackage abandoned.
