The Omaha Southern Railway was a subsidiary corporation owned by the Missouri Pacific Railroad Company. In 1891 the railroad bought a plot of land south of Plattsmouth, Nebraska that caused speculation in the town about the location of a railyard there.[1] The railroad was also subject to a period study of subsidies it received from local and state governments.[2]
