Cedar Rapids was served by the C&NW main line between Chicago and Omaha. C&NW actually used a "loop" route entering the city. Cedar Rapids was also along the Rock Island secondary main line between Burlington IA and St. Paul and Minneapolis. A Rock Island branch extended north to Decorah IA. Cedar Rapids was also along a Milwaukee Road branch from Marion to Ottumwa IA, diverging from the Milwaukee Road main line at Marion.
