    Folks -
    I'm assuming there was a Frisco Freight Depot in the KC area for LCL freight.

    Assuming I'm correct, does anyone have a photo, drawings, etc.? I've been looking at old Sanborn Maps on the University of Missouri Digital Library, but the going is slow.

    A part of me almost hopes there wasn't. At that point I will invoke artistic license, and scratchbuild the Frisco's Muskogee, OK freight house that I find thoroughly intriguing! :)

    Best Regards

    Frisco's KC Freight House was located "under" the 12th Street Viaduct. These shots were taken during the summer of 1980.

    Karl,

    Thanks for posting these photos of the Frisco Frieght House at 12th St. I have been wondering for a long time when that building was raized and if I could use it in my 1975-78 sessions. No one in KC could tell me anything about the demo date or even had a photo. You have answered two key questions.

    Now I want to build it.

    Thank you for your help.

    Rick

    I will echo both of those statements! Many thanks, Karl.
