I won't say for sure; but I doubt it very much. Not unless they bought it
You may be correct. I recall the Wabash owning some large tracts both in the
KC and St. Louis industrial areas and assumed that the Ford plant might have
been built on railroad owned property.
I made several trips to KC with Mr. William Harding, who was the Wabash
Manager of Real Estate, in the late 1940's to make property surveys and
layout industrial spurs.
