    This seems like the best place to put this thread...

    I have located Sanborn Maps of Bragg City on the River Div/Leachville Sub/Caruthersville Branch (MP 222). I'm good on the track plan.

    What I cannot determine is the layout of the SSW Crossing just to the west (MP 222.5). Specifically, would this just have been a crossing or was there a connection by which the SL-SF/SSW could interchange?

    The 1926 Frisco List of Agents, Stations, Etc. shows no interchange at Bragg City. However, yhe 1940 ETT shows a crossing protected by an interlocking; a 1969 Southern Division ETT shows a gate protecting the crossing.

    Any thoughts?

    It's been several years but I believe it was only a crossing with no interchange. I have been thru there several times and see no evidence of a interchange (roadbed).
