    The Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway was a mid-sized Class I railroad which operated in the heart of America's breadbasket. The M&StL was one of just several Granger railroads that served this region (other such names included the Chicago & North Western, Rock Island, Chicago Great Western, and the Milwaukee Road) but its inability to directly serve the largest cities like Chicago and St. Louis hampered its efforts to remain competitive through the 20th century. Despite the railroad being taken over by the Chicago & North Western in 1960 and was one of the first mergers of the modern "mega merger" movement, the M&StL operated for nearly 100 years and in its final years became a rather lean and efficient operation. With its take over by the C&NW, much of railroad was abandoned and little remains of it today.
