Glencoe to Hutchinson

In 1898, the Chicago, Milwaukee, Saint Paul and Pacific Railroad, known as the Milwaukee Road, built a 15-mile extension from their mainline in Glencoe northwest to Hutchinson, in Minnesota. At the time, the railroad was the only reliable source of transportation in the region, and as many as six passenger trains traveled the line, with transfers in Glencoe to either the west coast or the Twin Cities/Chicago.

Towns along the line:

  • Glencoe
  • Biscay
  • Hutchinson

The Milwaukee Road abandoned the line in early 1957.

Thanks to Adam Jelinski for contributing information about this route.

In 1898 it was the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway until 1928 when it was reorganized as the Chicago, Milwaukee, Saint Paul and Pacific Railroad.
