Clinton was served by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, better known as the Milwaukee Road, and the Chicago and North Western Railroad (C&NW). It was on the Racine & Southwestern branch line of the Milwaukee Road and on the C&NW line between Harvard, Illinois, and Janesville, Wisconsin. In its 1980 bankruptcy, the Milwaukee Road disposed of the Southwestern Line. The Union Pacific Railroad, which took over the C&NW, operates today in Clinton on former C&NW tracks and on a remnant of the former Milwaukee Road west to Beloit, where it provides a rail connection to Fairbanks-Morse.[clarification needed]
