St. Louis & San Franciso Ry. Never got west of Texas. Altho ultimately operating 5000 miles in nine states serving southwest and southeast territory, its name (like so many) represented only aspirations rather than eventualities. Now part of BNSF system, in which SF stands for SFe rather than San Francisco.
