Frisco Northern Division at 2-25-2009

Attached are several photos showing my layout on February 25, 2009. This layout has been under construction since November 2001 and has been operating since Ocotber 2002. At 2-25-09, this layout has hosted 115 operating sessions. It is located in my basement in Shawnee, KS a KC suburb or, as I like to think about it, a suburb of Lawrence, KS. Lawrence is one of my favorite towns especially when it is not burning. At 2-25 the layout begins with the SLSF 19th St yard, the inbound yard for the Frisco in KCMO. It is followed by the MKT Glen Park Yard and the SLSF Rosedale (outbound) yard. The mainline goes south and includes Merriam, Lenexa, Spring Hill, Paola, Fontana and Ft Scott. Expansion plans southward will soon become reality and with Phase I featuring Lamar, Elwood, Nichols Jct and the Springfield yard. Phase II will include South Springfield (including the passenger station), the MP yard and the Ozark branch. Phase III will include the Eastern Division towns of Marshfield, Lebanon and Newburg. Phase III will also include the world famous Wally Siding serving Griesemer Quarry. At present we are operating in the 1950 time period but will switch back to 1978 in mid 2010. The existing layout is far from complete but I thought there might be a few interested in seeing what the heck has been going on. Ship IT on the Frisco ! Rick McClellan
