Decatur and Overland Railroad is a major railroad serving from the city of Decatur. It was sometimes called the Dirty and Old. In 1975 they were in a period of restructuring and sold track and some equipment to the new short-line Camden and Spearfish Lake Railroad. Over time it also sold the Kremmling Branch and its gravel pit traffic.

D&O also had branches in Rochester and Coldwater.

In 1981, Les Marks was the Division Supervisor based in the Putnam Yard and Steve Cziller was the Road Foreman. A rescue train was led by Steve to help the C&SL with the Warsaw Fire.
