Nebraska, Kansas & Colorado Railway (NKCR) owns and operates approximately 559 miles of track in three states and carries a diverse mix of traffic including wheat, corn, coal, and fertilizer.

NKCR has benefited from its ability to attract high throughput grain elevators to its lines due to its superior service record and excellent relationship with BNSF. More specifically, NKCR recently made considerable track improvements in conjunction with upgrade investments by the owners of grain elevators at Venango, Loomis and Maywood, Nebraska, each of which now loads 110-car shuttle trains. In addition to grain, NKCR ships inbound coal to the largest power plant in Nebraska.
