Please tell me how the Katy served the southwest. They did not go any
further west than The Texas panhandle, and they did not do that
except by buying an RR that came up from the south and had no
business buying. And being from Kansas that is not the south west
just the south. The Southwest does not start until you get into New
Mexico. Even during the steam era with all the nice steam era freight
cars.


Larry,

I refer you to the now defunct Southwest Conference of college athletics.
IIRC the school the furthest west was Texas or Southern Methodist.

Let us not forget when the term southwest was coined AZ, NM were not even
states.
