Railroads in Oklahoma in 1915

Under Construction   05/15/2006

The stations listed for each railroad were transcribed from the 1915 map:
Western OK Covers from the western border to a line far enough east of Oklahoma City to show the entire route of the original Santa Fe tracks in Oklahoma.

Eastern OK

Covers from the eastern border to a line far enough west of Enid and Chickasha to show the entire route of the original Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific tracks in Oklahoma.

Abbreviations are from the map, with full names taken from other sources when available.  Wherever possible, I have included information about predecessor and successor lines, but not all of the already-abandoned railroads or ones that were built later are included.  

Routes are still being transcribed so some did extend past the sections that have been covered so far.   Click on any of these links to see the railroad's list of stations.

The transcriptions are a searchable resource but if your area of interest is not yet covered the worksheets posted under Railroad Maps can be used to locate some settlements for which there were railroad stations but we have found no records of post offices or incorporated towns.
