The New Orleans Texas & Mexico Railway was the overiding corporate entity of the Gulf Coast Lines. These lines were owned by the St. Louis – San Francisco Railroad (Frisco) up until the mid-1920s when the Missouri Pacific Railroad (MoPac) took them over. As the “corporate workhorse” of the Gulf Coast Lines, the NOT&M; was used to purchase many smaller Texas lines, including the New Ibernia & Northern (1916), Houston & Brazos Valley (1924), and International-Great Northern (1924). When the MoPac gained control of the NOT&M;, it still operated as a buying machine, and later gained control of the San Antonio, Uvalde & Gulf (1925) and the Asphalt Belt (1925), the Sugarland (1926), the Asherton & Gulf (1926), the Rio Grande City (1926), the New Orleans & Lower Coast (1926), the San Antonio Southern (1926) – affectionately known as “the Sausage.” All of the flags of the Gulf Coast Lines and its acquired roads were absorbed into the MoPac in 1956.
