      I love this scene. I remember driving under these railroad overpasses on numerous occasions. The inclusion of the abandoned MKT is a great touch.

      I live just off Business US 71 in your sky blue wall at top of photo. What is left of this is between my back door and Town Square. Well Done! Good treatment of area in limited space!

      This is very good. I haven't been to the town in a while since leaving the KC area. From what I've seen from the google map, it looks totally different compared to your layout here.

      You are correct, the area has changed considerably. Most of the Frisco tracks are gone and both diamonds are gone. Retail shops have taken the place of industry and ag businesses along the Leaky Roof spur. The two bridges and abandoned MKT abutment still remain over Business US 71.

      Now that Blairstown is nearly complete, I am beginning to work on Harrisonville again. I hope to start benchwork and tracklaying north to Dodson soon.
