The Lake Erie and Western Railroad was a railroad that operated in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

The beginning

The Seney Syndicate linked several short railroads in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois to form the Lake Erie and Western Railroad in 1879 and 1880. The Lake Erie and Western extended from the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway at Fremont, Ohio 350 miles (560 km) westward to Bloomington, Illinois.

Acquisitions

In 1900, the Lake Erie and Western came under the control of the New York Central Railroad. After operating it as a separate entity for two decades, the New York Central sold the Lake Erie and Western to the Nickel Plate Railroad in 1922.
