History of company: This company's name is somewhat of a misnomer. It really had nothing to do with constructing railroads in Missouri or anywhere else. It was in reality an investment company.It was a corporation organized under the laws of New York and Missouri in 1896. It's purpose was to reorganize the failed Omaha and St. Louis Railway which was sold in foreclosure in Jan. 27, 1896 into a new company. This new company was the Omaha and St. Louis Railroad Company.
