That looks like the sign at Niota, Il. It don't look like that anymore, it says BNSF on it and toll from Il. to Ia. is free. It costs $1 to go from Ia. to Il. however.

When I was working in Fort Madison, employees (and trains) were free.

I have a version sung by Leadbelly that is closer to Horton's. I guess like most folk songs, the lyrics have gone through many variations.

If I remember correctly, very long ago the sign had a fee for herds of various livestock.
