    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
