Nebraska, corn and railroads go hand in hand.

Today, the Cornhusker State continues to rely on rail. In fact, Nebraska was 4th nationally in 2011 in originated rail tons of farm products,  6th in originated rail tons of food products and 2nd  in originated rail tons of ethanol. The nation relies on railroads and Nebraska to feed its economy.
