The Ft. Dodge Des Moines and Southern Railway began in 1906 as an 85 mile line to service the gypsum mining and producing industries between Fort Dodge and Des Moines, Iowa. In 1907 the line electried and added interurban service. By 1918 the line ourished with added industiries and passenger service.
