Cancel for November 10: Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa Railroad

THE I. I. & I. R. R. CO.

The Indiana, Illinois and Iowa RR was a shortline railroad that ran from South Bend to Churchill Indiana.  The road ran south of Chicago giving it great advantages in moving through-freight that did not need to be transfered in the busy Chicago train yards.  The 3 "Is" was purchased by the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad in 1901.
