True Stories of Amazing People and Places in Texas

Steam Locomotive in Amarillo Texas 1910

Industry in Amarillo began with railroads, cattle and merchandising. The first Fort Worth & Denver City passenger train arrived in Amarillo in March of 1888 from Clarendon, which was the former terminal. Construction was completed to Texline where the Fort Worth & Denver City connected with the Colorado and Southern. The two companies, with a system reaching from Wyoming to the Gulf of Mexico, were now consolidated into the Burlington System. In 1928 the Fort Worth & Denver City built a network of railroads on the South Plains that greatly benefited Amarillo. In 1931 they began building from Childress to Pampa.
