Ellis & Eastern Railroad EE

Nature of Firm

EE operates freight service from a connection with UP at Agate, MN to a connection with BNSF at Manley, MN, a distance of 41 miles.


This line was abandoned in 1988 by Chicago and Northwestern Transportation Company. Subsequently, the Buffalo Ridge Regional Railroad Authority (BRRRA) bought the line. Nobles Rock Railroad leased and operated the line from 1993 to 2000, when the railroad became insolvent. In December 2000, Minnesota Southern Railway leased and began operations over the line. Ellis and Eastern Railroad took over the lease in 2017.
