Peoria and Eastern Railway


Peoria and Eastern Railway

The Peoria and Eastern Railway was incorporated on 21 February 1890 for the purpose of constructing or acquiring a railway between Pekin, Illinois and Indianapolis, Indiana. The following day, the company acquired such a railroad from Charles H. Coster and Samuel Spencer, who had purchased the railroad in a foreclosure sale of the Ohio Indiana and Western Railway, which had become insolvent the previous year. On the same day, the company entered into an agreement with the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway, surrendering operation and control of the railroad to that company, also known as the "Big Four".
