The Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad, a subsidiary of the Chicago and North Western Railroad, constructed this railway line between Buffalo Gap and Hot Springs in 1890. After the FE&MV formally merged into the C&NW in 1903, the C&NW abandoned this line in 1939.

the depot is still in Hot Springs & at one time was billed as the World's Smallest depot
The superlative about the Hot Springs Station is that it was supposedly the world's smallest Union Station - i.e. a single station serving multiple rail lines. In this case, it was the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad and the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad.
