The Keokuk Junction Railway Co. (reporting mark KJRY), is a Class III railroad in the U.S. states of Illinois and Iowa. It is a subsidiary of Pioneer Railcorp.
The present company was incorporated in 1980 as the Keokuk Northern Real Estate Co., formed in May 1980 to purchase 4.5 miles (7.2 km) of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad yard track in Keokuk, Iowa. The KJRY obtained that trackage in 1981. In December 1986, the KJRY bought, from the Santa Fe Railway, 33.5 miles (53.9 km) of trackage consisting of the LaHarpe line and Warsaw line from Keokuk/Warsaw, Illinois to LaHarpe, Illinois, formerly owned by the Toledo, Peoria and Western.
Pioneer Railcorp filed with the Surface Transportation Board to acquire 66.62% of KRENCO, Inc. (the KJRY) from majority shareholder John Warfield, and purchased KRENCO in March 1996.
The KJRY bought 12.1 miles (19.5 km) from LaHarpe to Lomax, Illinois plus assigned trackage rights from Lomax to Fort Madison, Iowa in December 2011; and 76 miles (122 km) from the Toledo, Peoria and Western from LaHarpe to Peoria, Illinois in February 2005.
