    Does anyone have or know where I can find a track plan of Fredonia, KS.? I will take any era but would like it to show the trackage and interchanges with both the MP and ATSF. I thought I ran across one in the past couple of weeks but can't seem to remember where I saw it.
    Thanks,
    Bob Hoover

    It's in one of the posted FMIG newsletters, but which? I think Jim Rucker supplied it.

    To Paul Weston and all:

    Do you have a track plan of Fredonia that you could post hopefully showing both ends of the yard and the cement plant east of town.

    Thanks,

    Has anyone seen a photo of the SLSF\ATSF Fredonia Union Depot or know when it was torn down?

    Richard, those pictures seem to indicate that the Fredonia depot started life as an interlocking tower, then had the depot added to the tower. Is that assessment correct?

    How can I print the images posted? When I open them and try to print them I only get the upper left hand part.

    The best way to view or save the picture attachments from any thread is as follows:

    1) Right-click on the attachment thumbnail and select Open in New Window..
    2) Right-click on the image and select Save Picture As..
    3) Navigate to a location on your computer that you will be able to find and click Save.
    4) Navigate on your computer to that location and double-click on the image file.
    5) Use the default image viewing software to print the image in a size that will fit on 81/2 x 11 paper.

    Keith,

    I do not believe that this is correct. The B&B records indicate that the entire structure was built during 1880, and the only addition to the structure was "indoor plumbing". A 1923 ETT does not show this crossing being protected by an interlocking plant.

    Thanks again, Richard, for the great photos. Do you know what year these were taken?
    Here is the depot floor plan -
