The Kankakee, Beaverville and Southern Railroad Company (reporting mark KBSR) is a Class III railroad serving agricultural communities in east-central Illinois and west-central Indiana. In December 1977, Conrail was set to abandon 25 miles (40 km) of their ex-New York Central Railroad trackage between Kankakee and Sheldon, Illinois, when instead it was purchased by Beaverville businessman Fey Orr to service his lumber and agricultural products industry based there. Locomotive maintenance is conducted at the road shops at Iroquois Junction.
