The 1886 World Series: A Tribute To The Browns

The Missouri Pacific branches (Council Grove, Osage City and Ottawa Railway), seventy-eight miles long, forty-two miles completed, stations named after the members of the Browns, i.e.: Ottawa to Foutz, 36.7 miles; Ottawa to Latham, 41.3 miles; Ottawa to Admire City, 47.5 miles; Ottawa to Bushong, 56 miles, and Ottawa to Comiskey, 62.5 miles.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, October 23, 1886

I think that's kind of neat.
