Kaw River Railroad (KAW)
Kansas City, KS – Central Region
The original Kaw River Railroad (KAW) was a Kansas City Southern Railway Company property that became the first short line Watco Companies would operate for KCS. The 12-mile line began operations in June 2004, serving customers in Kansas City, Kan./Mo. and the historic Union Station. The KAW expanded in April 2005, adding 16 miles that included the Birmingham, Mo. to Kearney, Mo. line. The expansion is a BNSF property serving customers in Clay County, Mo. and interchanges with the BNSF at Birmingham, Mo.
In March 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 2007, nearly 15 miles of industrial track was added, serving customers of the Bedford Yard. The KCTL interchanges with the BNSF, ICE, KCS, NS and UP at Kansas City. Collectively, the KAW and KCTL handle approximately 15,000 carloads of animal byproducts, chemicals, plastics and industrial products annually. Also, the KAW has a transload site available for handling dry bulk products and other carload traffic. The KAW operations office is located in Kansas City, KS and Customer Service is located in both Pittsburg and Kansas City, Kan.
