KCS Macaroni Line Rebuild
In 1996 the Kansas City Southern, through their subsidiary Texas Mexican Railroad bought a 90 miles segment of unused/abandoned Southern Pacific trackage from Rosenberg to Victoria, TX. The line was dormant and unused by the TM/KCS until 2006 when they announced they would rebuild the line to avoid continued running on a circuitous UP route from Houston via Flatonia to Victoria. As of August 1, 2009 KCS has opened the line for through traffic.
