    The Texas Short Line Railway Company was chartered on February 28, 1901. The company was formed to build and operate a ten mile stretch of railroad from Grand Saline to a connection with the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway Company of Texas near Alba. In 1903 the railroad owned one locomotive and seven cars and reported passenger earnings of $1,000 and freight earnings of $16,000. The company entered receivership on April 20, 1908, and was ordered sold, but through reorganization managed to escape being sold. The small railway company managed to chug on through the 1950s.
