Missouri K-line Route, 1922169 viewsK-line. St. Louis to Burlington. 220 miles. Not well known in the annuals of rail trips, the K-line was an integral part of the early Chicago, Burlington & Quincy history with infamous trains as the Zephyr-Rocket and Mark Twain Zephyr.. Rumored to be named for the St. Louis, Keokuk and Northwestern Railway who grew the route from a conglomeration of various predecessor railroads, the K-line still retains a scenic & vintage quality not often found on modern railroads. We will start in Hannibal...
