Company History: This company was the predecessor to the Austin Area Terminal Railroad, operating the same route from Llano to Giddings, Texas. When Southern Pacific applied to abandon the route in 1986, it was acquired by Capital Metro-City of Austin who approached shortline group RailTex to operate freight service. RailTex established the Austin & Northwestern to do just that. That arrangement lasted until 1996 when Longhorn Railway became the operator.
