Transportation Company - Hutchinson & Northern - Railroad



Company History: The H&N was built in 1923 as an electrified freight carrier with 5 miles of line in Hutchinson, Kansas. The line was owned for most of its history by its largest customer, Carey Salt Company. In 1970, the line was dieselized and the trolley wire came down. Secondhand switchers from Alco and EMD took over the work. In 2006, the line was sold to V&S Railway.

Successor/Parent History:
The V&S Railway owns and operates two different shortline railroads in the State of Kansas. The Medicine Lodge Division extends from Medicine Lodge, KS to Attica, KS. The freight traffic consists of frac sand, wall board and plaster. The Hutchinson Division is located wholly within the City of Hutchinson, Kansas, as handles movements of salt, scrap metal and repaired cars.
