Dedicated to all the hard working men
and women of the former Missouri Division. This division ran between
Ft Madison, Iowa and Sheffield, Mo. Trains were then operated
VIA Kansas City Terminal Railway to Argentine Yard. This is still
the route today although it is now known as the Marceline Subdivision
of the Chicago Division. Division points were Ft Madison and Marceline.
During the lifespan of the Missouri Division Dispatchers, Superintendents
Offices and many more crafts were located at both points. The
only Branch Line along this route was located at Henrietta, Mo.
and known as the St. Joseph Branch. For more information click
