  • The Midland Valley Railroad was incorporated in 1903 for the purpose of building a line from Hoye, Arkansas, through Muskogee and Tulsa, Oklahoma to Wichita, Kansas. The railroad took its name from Midland, Arkansas, a coal mining town in western Arkansas which was served by the railroad. The Midland Valley gained access to Fort Smith, Arkansas via trackage rights over the Frisco from Rock Island, Oklahoma. Muskogee, Oklahoma, was home to the Midland Valley's headquarters and shops. In 1925, the Midland Valley acquired the Kansas, Oklahoma and Gulf Railway. Both railroads were owned by the Muskogee Company, which purchased a third railroad Oklahoma City-Ada-Atoka Railway in 1929. All three railroads were operated as more or less common property by the Muskogee Company until sale of all railroads to the Missouri Pacific Railroad in 1964. The Midland Valley was merged into the T&P on April 1, 1967. Operated as branchlines for a number of years, most of the Midland Valley has now been abandoned.
  • The Midland Valley Railroad, était un chemin de fer américain de classe I qui fut créé en 1903 pour relier Hoye, Arkansas, Muskogee, Tulsa, Oklahoma et Wichita, Kansas. La compagnie tira son nom de la petite ville de Midland, située dans l'ouest de l'Arkansas où se trouvait une mine de charbon. Le MV put relier Fort Smith grâce à des droits de passage sur le St. Louis-San Francisco Railway (ou Frisco) à partir de la ville de Rock Island, Oklahoma. Le quartier général et les ateliers étaient localisés à Muskogee, Oklahoma. Le MV racheta le Kansas, Oklahoma and Gulf Railway (KO&G) en 1925. Ces 2 compagnies étaient contrôlées par la Muskogee Company, qui racheta aussi l'Oklahoma City-Ada-Atoka Railway (OCAA) en 1929. Ces compagnies, gérées en commun, faisaient partie des Muskogee Lines. La Muskogee Company finit par revendre ces 3 chemins de fer au Texas and Pacific Railway (T&P) en 1964. Le T&P céda rapidement l'OCAA au Santa Fe, puis il fusionna MV le 1 avril 1967, et le KO&G le 1 avril 1970. Exploité comme embranchement du T&P durant de nombreuses années, la plus grande partie du MV est maintenant abandonnée.
