Hello From Wichita

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Wichita Heights, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. I am interested in SLSF history mainly centering around Wichita and Blackwell. Right now the focus is coming up w/ info on the switching of the old flour mill at Blackwell which closed in 2004. I would like to do a writing project about the mill and the rr switching associated there for the history museum in BW.

    When I rode with a friend from Winfield to Blackwell on ex santa fe track we had to use a remnant of the frisco to spot cars at the old flour mill in Blackwell . From what he said the mill was a frisco served industry and the santa fe had no direct link to serve it . So we backed through the connecting track onto what remained of the old frisco line then began our switching.

    Welcome aboard. I would also like to see your article.

  5. I remember the final days of operation of the ConAgra mill in 2004, smelled great.
    I think SKOL was still operating the line then. It was my favorite place in the world when I was 4-8 and my dad would take me there after school everyday to see a GP35 high hood that I named Mavis creep back and forth passed the Santa fe depot.
