    Did Campbell have a depot? Are there any pictures of it on here? Just wondered.

    At least until the 1930 abandonment, it looks like Campbell did. Station # TD215 of the Leachville Subdivision's Campbell Branch. Here's the relevant page from Karl Brand's River Division Employee Timetable No. 12 (7/19/1925):

    I've not seen any photos that I can recall. The old Frisco Employee's Magazines online ( might have either an old photo or additional information, but it would take a bit of searching. And, judging from the depot floor plans on Dr. Mike Condren's website, it was a joint agency, with the depot owned by the SSW. Floor Plans/index.html

  4. Campbell, by the early 1960's was a joint Frisco/Cotton Belt operation operated by Frisco employees out of the Cotton Belt depot. I worked that job as a relief agent/telegrapher in '66 and '67. You can find a photo of the depot in Missouri Depots, Winston,

    Thanks for the clarification, V.C. Would love to hear any and all stories from your River Division days as time allows...

    This also gave me a chance to update the link in my 2012 post that was broken.

    Best Regards,
