Description

Map showing the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad system, with its connections.

The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad was organized in 1859 to run from St. Joseph, Missouri to Topeka. The Santa Fe Railway was also chartered in 1859, proposing to connect with the Kansas line at Topeka.

This new transportation route promised to add the newly invented telegraph line along its path. This encouraged western travel and commerce throughout Kansas.

In the years following the war, much growth occurred in Topeka as mills and foundries were established. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad maintained important car and locomotive shops at Topeka. In 1866, citizens of Topeka saw the arrival of the Union Pacific Railroad, then known as Kansas Pacific. That line would later continue to Denver.

In 1879 the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad rolled their first passenger train into Santa Fe. The line more or less followed the same route as the famed wagon trail.

This map of the southwestern United States was published in 1883 by G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. It shows relief, drainage, cities, towns, and railroad network of 1882.

Included are portions of California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa.
