ABOUT

The original Kaw River Railroad (KAW) was a Kansas City Southern Railway Company property before becoming the first short line Watco Companies would operate for KCS. The 12-mile line began operations in June of 2004, serving customers in the Kansas City area as well as, the historic Union Station. The KAW expanded in April 2005, adding 16 miles that included the Birmingham, Missouri, to Kearney, Missouri line.  In March of 2006, the line expanded again and the KAW began operations for the Kansas City Transportation Company LLC (KCTL) serving more than 30 Customers. In May of 2007, nearly 15 miles of industrial track was added, serving Customers of the Bedford Yard. The KCTL interchanges with the BNSF, CP, KCS, NS, and UP at Kansas City. Collectively, the KAW and KCTL handle approximately 15,000 carloads of animal by-products, chemicals, plastics, and industrial products annually. The KAW also has a transload site available for handling dry bulk products and other carload traffic.
