The predecessors of the DT&I spent most of their time in bankruptcy. When Henry Ford bought the company in 1920 he poured much need cash into improvements. One of these was the building of a more direct route north from Malinta to Petersburg between 1925 and 1929. Ford sold the DT&I to the PRR in 1929. It became independent in 1970 as a result of the collapse of the Penn Central.
