Bevier & Southern Railroad

Missouri shortline

Launched in 1914, the Bevier & Southern Railroad operated from a Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (later Burlington Northern) connection at Bevier, Missouri. The line travelled nine miles south to Binkley and primarily offered outbound coal service to local mines. The BVS was abandoned in 1982, although in recent years the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad has rehabilitated a section of the line to serve a coal-fired power plant.
