I&M Rail Link Unofficial Web Page

The I&M Rail Link, owned by the Washington Corporation, operated 1,385 miles of trackage in the states of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin. The lines were acquired in from the Canadian Pacific Railway, which were originally built by the Milwaukee Road and its predecessors. The railroad commenced operations at 12:01 p.m. April 5, 1997.

In late 2001 the Washington Corp. looked to divest itself of the railroad claiming it unprofitable. On July 29, 2002 the assets of the I&M Rail Link, LLC were officially transferred to the Iowa, Chicago & Eastern, which is owned by the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern subsidiary, Cedar American Railroad Holdings. Operations were curtailed at 12:01 p.m. on that date.
