    Re: Columbus Kansas

    The website Kansas Memory (http://www.kansasmemory.org) contains several excellent photos from Southeastern Kansas.

    The SLSF Columbus Depot can be found at: http://www.kansasmemory.org/item/215365 and the tower pictured earlier in this thread is also shown (http://www.kansasmemory.org/item/215367). Dates are mid-to-late 1950s. One depot (may be the MKT) can still be seen with the streetview of Google maps if you drive north off Maple just west of the grain elevator.

    For a real treat, take a look at the photos from nearby Cherokee, Kansas showing the Frisco Station and Railyards between 1895 and 1905. (http://www.kansasmemory.org/item/220809). Not really categorized under "railroads" and found by accident.
