Oklahoma Central Railway Co. operated a respectable 129.4 miles of line
from Lehigh to Chickasha.  Some of the intermediate stations were Tupelo,
Ada, Byars, Stratford, and Purcell. 
The route was primarily constructed to transport coal from the mines at Lehigh
to Purcell in order to service 
steam locomotives on the Santa Fe, which maintained a division point at that location.

Stratford, the Peach Capital Of Oklahoma, still has its depot on the north outskirts
of town.  Relocated, of course.

Now you know.
