KILDARE AND LINDEN RAILWAY. The Kildare and Linden Railway was primarily an unchartered facility of the Jefferson Lumber Company. However, the railroad provided common carrier service on its thirteen miles of track between Linden, county seat of Cass County, and Kildare, on the Texas and Pacific Railway. The narrow gauge railroad opened on February 1, 1889, and was reportedly abandoned in 1900.
