Rock Island mainline         
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.
