Southern Pacific Transportation Company

Southern Pacific Transportation Company (South Pacific Transport Company) account mark (English) Russian. SP, formerly Southern Pacific Railroad (1865 - 1885) and Southern Pacific Company (1885 - 1969), or better known as Southern Pacific, is an American railway company.
The company was founded in 1865 and later leased to Central Pacific Railroad. By 1900, the Southern Pacific Company had grown into a large railway system, which included small companies such as Texas and New Orleans Railroad and Morgan's Louisiana and Texas Railroad. The company's railroads stretched from New Orleans through Texas to El Paso, through New Mexico and Tucson to Los Angeles, through most of California to San Francisco and Sacramento. [1]
The total length of Southern Pacific routes has changed from year to year per year: in 1929 it was 22.286 km, and with the merger with D & amp; RGW it was 16.774 km, mainly due to the trimming of tracks. But after merging with St. Louis Southwestern Railway had a total length of 21.739 km [2].
On August 9, 1988, the Interstate Commerce Commission approved the purchase of the Southern Pacific Company by Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad [2]. Subsequently, due to financial problems, the Pacific company entered the Union Pacific Railroad. It is noteworthy that in 1886 the railway was a defendant in the Supreme Court in the case of Santa Clara County v. South Pacific Railway [1].
