Washed Away
Title:  Washed Away
Description:  The former RI/ATSF line between St Joseph and Atchison was washed out at Winthrop MO by a flood in 2011. As of 2012 the line is still out of service. See Zach Pumphrey's shots of this same location to see what nature did to it. UP 5652 sits with an empty coal train during more normal times. The tracks to the right are what's left of the old BN/CB&Q branch from Armour, which was abandoned in the late 1980s.

Rock Island mainline
Title:  Rock Island mainline
Description:  This is the state of the former RI's "mainline" across Missouri, 27 years after the last train rolled over it. Nature is slowly consuming what's left; this portion is in the small Cole County town of Henley. Officially the line has never been abandoned- but any attempt to reopen it will undoubtedly require an untold amount of money as well as years in court to fight adjacent land owners.

27 years later
Title:  27 years later
Description:  This is what's left of Rock Island's cross-Missouri main after a quarter century without a train. The Miller County town of Eldon was the route's crew-change point and boasted a roundhouse and yard. In spite of the fact that the tracks are still in and the line has never been officially abandoned, the chances of it ever seeing a train again seem slim to none.

Lost Rails: Henley MO
Title:  Lost Rails: Henley MO
Description:  This is Henley MO, at one time a small town on the Rock Island's cross-Missouri line as well as a junction for the little-known Hickory Hill RR. Although not formally abandoned, there hasn't been a train through here since 1980, which is probably the age of the trees which cover the roadbed and rails, which are just visable in the lower right hand corner.

Abby-Normal
Title:  Abby-Normal
Description:  I left Missouri in 1978 and came back to live in St Louis in 2004. TRRA was always switchers from my memory, either EMD or AlCo, and the idea that they'd ever get big six-axle power was definately odd. Nonetheless, that's what they got- and here are two of them, shot near Grand Avenue in St. Louis proper.

Title:  Newly Arrived in Mexico: Startup power for the Ozark Valley
Description:  The Ozark Valley RR took over the KCS's former ICG/GM&O/Alton Fulton branch in 2007. First power for the new line was from sister road Bountiful Grain & Craig Mountain in the form of BGCM 3003. It's shown here in July 2007 within a day or two of arrival. In Nov 2009 it moved on to another shortline in South Dakota.

Running through Hannibal
Title:  Running through Hannibal
Description:  Three NS units (9615, 9147, 5105) lead a westbound freight through Hannibal MO as the rails turn from along the river back towards the west. Not much remains from the city's railroad heyday. At the start of World War II the CB&Q, Wabash, St Louis & Hannibal and Hannibal Connecting (in nearby Ilasco) were all here, and the Burlington had a substantial divisional roundhouse and shop complex located just south of downtown. Now BNSF bairly slows down as it passes through while NS has a small, underused yard on the west side.

The coal train is on the main while Amtrak 413 waits in the siding for it. The Sedalia sub is largely used for westbound UP freight while eastbounds normally operate on the parallel River Sub, located further north. Amtrak's St Louis-bound eastbounds have to dodge freights through the eight sidings on the 157 mile single-track portion to Jefferson City, which usually slows progress considerably. Today's train left KC on time and will arrive Jeff City 45 minutes late. This picture was shot out of the rear window of a Horizon coach.

Amtrak trains pass at River Junction
Title:  Amtrak trains pass at River Junction
Description:  We're at River Junction, MP128 on the UP (ex MP) Sedalia Sub, about 2.5 miles west of the Missouri state capital of Jefferson City. The eastbound Ann Rutledge (tr 413) has crossed from track 2 to number 1 and stopped to allow the Missouri Mule (train 311, shown here) go by on its way to KC. 314 will now back 200 yards or so and cross back to track 1 before proceeding into the Jeff City station for its stop. The silhouette to the right is the train's conductor, who will observe ther reverse movement.

Radio Intercept
Title:  Radio Intercept
Description:  Driving south on MO79 through Winfield MO when the scanner picks up a detector. You just have time to get off the road and set up for this local running east (north) on the BNSF "K-Line"; it turns out to be three units (B40-8W, B40-8, GP39-2) and all of four covered hoppers.

Action in Clarksville
Title:  Action in Clarksville
Description:  The Mississippi River town of Clarksville MO is a pleasant place to watch trains; it's on the BNSF "K-Line" and sees a good amount of traffic, a lot of which is coal. The touristy downtown features antique shops, a trackside park on the river and an elevated observation area for the adjacent lock and dam facility. (and the Purple Martins didn't seem to mind the train much either!)
