      Way back in history there may have been other row s
      south of the Gasconade River?

      If so, perhaps those ghost rail row s can be seen?
      someone at frisco.org may know.

      Well i was there back about 2004 visiting a friend who was in the army reserve and attending the chem warfare school for training. Have some pics of locomotives there at the time.

      Of course i am partial to USAF locomotives being retired USAF myself. But its all good.

      The Ft. Leonard Wood line is quite interesting in its length and route just to get to the post. Something like 19.5 miles or so from where it branched off the old Frisco main. A few sidings along the route and the trestles of course and thats about it. Just built to serve the army base so no industries or anything along the branch between the Frisco main and the base trackage.

      Most of the air force bases have abandoned and removed much or all of their track. Tinker AFB in Midwest City, Oklahoma had some extensive trackage as well as an engine house but the majority of trackage was removed, the engine house is long gone and what little track is left is idle. No locomotives or rolling stock on the base. When i first arrived there in 1993 they were in the process of pulling track and the locomotives were gone and there were just a couple of boxcars left that they were either going to relocate or were scrapping on site. Didn't have alot of opportunity to check it out just arriving there for my next duty base in Sep 1993 and by December i was deployed for 6 months so by the time i got back in June of 1994 what had been left was by then mostly gone.
