The remainder of the line was not completed until it was sold to the St. Louis, Rock Island & Chicago Railroad Company. The line subsequently came under the control of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company and known as the St. Louis division, and later in 1904 that part of the road from Rio north to Savanna was transferred to the Galesburg division.
