Album Info:Grain elevators along the tracks of various railroads in Kansas. In 2012 I set out on a mission to photograph a grain elevator in every county in Kansas that had rail service to it. I went to all 105 counties in Kansas taking over 25 trips and covering over 2 years. I discovered that there are 3 counties in Kansas with no elevators served by rail and 4 counties that have no rail service at all. Here are some of the places I stopped, but by no means all.
