The Ottawa Northern Railroad is the Newest addition to the Rock Island Family of Railroads. ONR operates 16 track miles of line north from Ottawa Kansas. ONR interchanges with the BNSF Transcon.
Ottawa Northern will continue to operate the historic equipment obtained with the railroad. One of the stars of the acquired equipment is the Katy (MKT) 142. The 142 is the sole remaining example of the EMD remanufactured Alco RS3 locomotives done by EMD in the late 1950's. Plans are in the works to bring back the excursion train experience over this historic rail line. Check back soon for more information.
