Note: The Chicago & Erie was originally built as the Chicago & Atlantic, completed in 1880 between Hammond, Indiana and Marion, Ohio, where connections were made with another component of the Erie system, the New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio (NYPANO). The C&E made it possible for the Erie system to run through between New York and Chicago, with access to Chicago over the Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad.
