In the St. Louis Post-Dispatch dated 6/15/06 there is an article indicating that Amtrak and the state of Missouri are seriously considering a new route connecting St. Louis with Springfield, MO. The state is interested in the idea so that traffic congestion on Interstate 44 could be lessened. If it happens, daily round-trip service would begin within one to two years on existing rail lines that haven't seen passenger service in 40 years. There would be stops at Kirkwood, Sullivan, Rolla and Lebanon, MO. It seems obvious that the old Frisco lines, now BNSF, are the rails that would be used. I am wondering where the Kirkwood stop might be made. The Frisco had a depot in Kirkwood but I understand it has been gone for a long time. Can anyone tell me where exactly this Kirkwood depot was located, ie., street name or intersection, or provide me with any other info about the Kirkwood depot. Of course, the present Kirkwood depot which is an Amtrak stop is on the UP lines. I guess they could run the new Springfield Amtrak train on the UP tracks from St. Louis and make the Kirkwood stop at the present depot and then a little further down the line, say in Valley Park where the UP and BNSF lines are side by side, make a crossover to the BNSF and continue on their track all the way to Springfield. I would appreciate any further info or your thoughts on this subject. Thanks.
