The Sidney and Lowe Railroad (reporting mark SLGG) is a switching line that runs between Sidney, Nebraska, a connection with BNSF Railway at Huntsman, Nebraska and a connection with Union Pacific Railroad at Brownson, Nebraska. It was founded in 1980 by Oscar J. Glover, President and CEO of Glover Group, Inc. to service a railroad car maintenance and repair facility that Mr. Glover had built in the area near the U.S. Army's Big Sioux Depot. Mr. Glover later jointly built a grain storage and transfer facility that was serviced by the Sidney & Lowe Railroad. It became a common carrier in 1982 and was purchased by Progress Rail Service in 1996.
