The owned mileage extends northwestwardly from Kankakee, Ill., to Seneca, Ill., a distance of 42.260 miles. The carrier also owns yard and side tracks totaling 6.703 miles. Its road thus embraces 48.963 miles of all tracks owned. From the opening of the road it has been operated by the carrier through an agent, the Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St. Louis and Chicago Railway Company, and its successor, The Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railway Company. In Appendix 1 will be found a general description of the property of the carrier.
