The Cleveland Barberton and Western Railroad Company (CBWR) was incorporated on October 23, 1899, with Edwin F. Voris as President. Like some of the other A&BB predecessors, the CBWR never completed the construction of a railroad. On May 6, 1902 the company was consolidated with The Barberton, Belt Line Railroad Company and The Barberton, Akron and Eastern Belt Line Railroad Company to form The Akron & Barberton Belt Railroad Company,.
