Scarce map of the so-called Nickel Plate Railroad.

The New York, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad Company, popularly known as the “Nickel Plate Road” (reporting mark NKP), lasted for 83 years.

Starting as a single road from Chicago to Buffalo to compete with the New York Central’s Lake Shore and Michigan Southern line, it ended with four districts crisscrossing Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.  The Nickel Plate became an industry leader in the delivery of freight with its renowned "Nickel Plate High Speed Service" and mighty 2-8-4 Berkshire steam locomotives.
