CHICAGO, BURLINGTON AND NORTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY
Its connection to the CB&Q gave it direct routes to Council Bluffs, Omaha Des Moines, Kansas City, Streater, Peoria, Quincy, Lincoln and other large cities in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Illinois, and Missouri. Connections made travel to Texas and the Pacific coast possible as well as sites in Cheyenne, Wyoming; Denver, Colorado; and Deadwood, South Dakota.
The CB&N merged into the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy in 1899.
