Davenport, Rock Island & North Western Ry.

 

Switching the Tri-Cities (now Quad Cities) area was a railroad jointly owned by the Burlington and Milwaukee Roads. It began in 1884 as the Davenport & Rock Island Ry Bridge Co. In 1895 it became the Davenport & Rock Island Bridge Ry and Terminal Co. Finally the DRI&NW name was adopted in 1898. The trackage extends from Clinton, IA, to Carbon Cliff, IL, and includes the bridge over the Mississippi. Locomotives were mostly hand-me-downs from the Milwaukee and the Q until dieselization. After the first group of Alcos, the use of diesels from the parents was resumed.

In 1970, CB&Q ownership went to the Burlington Northern, and later Chicago Milwaukee St Paul & Pacific ownership went to the Soo Line.
