    Early 1900's San Antonio fictionally (almost reality!) absorbed by the Frisco when Yoakum put 13 million into the San Antonio & Aransas Pass Railroad (That happened!). In April of 1902, the Frisco purchased the SA&AP, but at the comptrollers desk, just before the Comptroller was to seal the deal and stamp it, lawyers from the Southern Pacific barged in with a court order stopping the deal. Through dirty dealings, the SA&AP was stripped from the hands of the Frisco, and entered in the hands of the dirty SP.

    My railroad, the San Antonio & San Francisco, is the fictitious merger that was created when the Frisco became the controlling interest as if the 1902 sale that was advertised in the New York Times was completed. This merger gave the Frisco access to the sea on the Texas Coast in Corpus, and Aransas Pass, and up into the Hill Country to Kerrville, and eventually set to merge with the Frisco Line in Brady, TX.
