The Wabash Railway (AAR reporting mark: WAB) was a railroad that operated in the mid-central United States. It served a large area, including trackage in the states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Its primary connections included Chicago, Illinois, Cleveland, Ohio, Indianapolis, Indiana, St. Louis, Missouri and Toledo, Ohio. Predecessors were known as the Wabash, St. Louis and Pacific Railway and the Wabash Railroad.
In 1963, the Wabash and several other mid-western carriers, including its neighboring Nickel Plate Road, were merged into Norfolk & Western (N&W) Railway to form a more competitive and successful system serving 14 states and a province of Canada on more than 7,000 miles of track.
