The Kansas City Southern Railway Company is a 1,200 mile (1,900 km) system serving the central and south central U.S. states of Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. It is the only Class I railroad in the four-state region and is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri.
The railroad was formed in 1988 with the merger of the Kansas City Southern and Minnehaha Railway, , and a majority investment by BNSF. During the early years of its existence, the company’s primary function was to move oil from Texas to refineries in the Midwest via hauling crude oil on tank cars or transporting crude by pipeline. Today, it operates freight trains over approximately 10,000 miles (16,000 km) of track and connects with other Class I railroads at numerous points. The railroad’s major manufacturing facilities are in Kansas City, Missouri. Its classification yard is in Lone Star, Texas.

The Columbia-to-Kansas-City portion of the Missouri Pacific Railroad (MP) existed from 1855 until MP was merged into Union Pacific in 1996. The Kansas City terminus of MP was located at Ninth Street and Baltimore Avenue, and terminated at Northern Avenue. In 1856 the original MP was built westward from St. Louis, and then across the Big Muddy River to Westport, where it connected with the Pacific Railroad (PRR), which ran eastward from St. Joseph. The two companies shared trackage rights on PRR tracks to Kansas City. In 1865 Henry Boernstein was given permission to build a terminal in Kansas City, although it took until 1867 for him to actually purchase land at Ninth and Baltimore. In 1866 ownership of MP was conveyed to Jay Gould and a number of associates. The company was reincorporated as the Kansas City Terminal Railway in 1869, which became part of the St. Louis, Independence, and Northwest Railroad in 1870. The first train to reach Kansas City was on September 18, 1870.

blog outline:

The railroad was an extension of the Pacific Railroad (later the Missouri Pacific Railroad) to the Pacific coast. The California line began at Council Bluffs and passed through Des Moines, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska. Emporia, Kansas was reached in 1866 and Newton, Kansas in 1867. The line from Council Bluffs to Newton is still in use as UP’s mainline. From Newton, the line crossed the Grand River at Corning and continued to the west. The original line reached the Kansas River in downtown Kansas City, and continued to the main Union Depot located at what became the intersection of Grand Boulevard and Brooklyn Avenue, now called Grand Boulevard. From there, a line ran east on Penn Street to Main Street, then followed Main through downtown Kansas City up to the Eagle and Grand Haven Southern Railroads. The line then continued east along Corning Road (now State Avenue) before turning onto Lone Elm Road (now Blue Parkway), where it ended at the Missouri River.
The first California train arrived from Nebraska on October 10, 1870. On October 22, the first through train arrived from Council Bluffs, Iowa. By the end of 1870, four trains were arriving daily from Omaha and eight trains a day passed through Kansas City on the way to and from the Pacific Coast.
The California line was operated for many years under contract by several railroad companies, including:

The Columbia Mo to Kansas City Mo Trip Guide

as stated earlier, the line to Kansas City is currently not in use, this is an interesting route to consider though. Columbia MO and Kansas City MO are now connected through the Amtrak KCNC intermodal terminal by rail. The Amtrak Cascades rail service runs daily from Columbia, MO to Kansas City, KS. This is a great alternative to driving along I-70 if you are moving in between the two towns. The train will take you right into the Kansas City Amtrak depot. In addition to the daily service, there are also multiple other routes of travel along this old line. Amtrak has opted to use the Regional Transportation District’s (R.T.D.) Genessee County Transit in Kansas City as well as the Union Pacific Railroads in Columbia. R. T. D.’s Arrow-Express bus service provides service between Kansas City, MO and Columbia or Westport, MO along I-70.
