It was initially chartered on December 8, 1865, as the Atchison and Nebraska City Railroad but "City" was dropped from the name when it was formally organized in 1869. The charter authorized the railroad to be built from Atchison, Kansas, to some point on the Nebraska/Kansas border, not farther west than 25 miles (40 km) from the Missouri River. Work began on the railroad in Atchison in the summer of 1869 and it was completed to the state line, three miles (5 km) north of White Cloud, Kansas, in 1871. On November 3, 1871, the railroad absorbed the Atchison, Lincoln and Columbus Railroad, and completed building the railroad north into Lincoln, Nebraska, by the fall of 1872.
