This line was incorporated in Kansas in 1870.
The Kansas City, Burlington and Santa Fe Railway dreamed of connecting its namesakes but by 1878 had only stretched the forty miles between Burlington, Kansas, and a Kansas City, Lawrence & Southern (KCL&S) connection just south of Ottawa. A subsidiary, the Kansas City, Burlington and South-Western Railroad (KCB&S-W) planned to complete the project. Despite much promotion and effort, the company did not gain the public support that the Santa Fe, the Frisco, and the KCL&S won.
As those companies claimed the South-Western's projected territory, the KCB&S-W and the parent company entered receivership. The KCB&SF was purchased by Alden Speare in January of 1881. It was briefly operated as the Ottawa and Burlington Railroad before being leased by the Kansas City, Lawrence & Southern Kansas in April.
The line eventually became part of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe system.
