Kansas City and Olathe Electric Railway

The Kansas City and Olathe Electric Railway was a 7.1-mile (11.4 km) electric interurban rail line between Kansas City, Missouri, and Olathe, Kansas, that operated between 1903 and 1934.

It was also known as the Kansas City, Lawrence and Topeka Railway (because it originally was supposed to go to those cities), the Hocker's Grove Line for developer Richard W. Hocker (it now is usually referred to as the Hocker Line) and the Kansas City, Merriam and Shawnee Line (it was to stir development in Merriam and Shawnee, Kansas).
