The abandoned railroad route between Newkirk and Burbank of which 23.8 miles have been abandoned, was once operated in Oklahoma by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway.

The Chronicles of Oklahoma, by the Oklahoma Historical Society, had an interesting article in it about this portion of the line. The last train over this line was an Amtrak detour northbound. Although the abandonment had been announced, it wasn't official yet and the superstructure was still intact. The trainmen had to cut barded wire fences some of the ranchers had already put up.
Line was taken up to make room for Kaw Lake.
