    Located on the northwest side of Springfield Mo is Nichols Junction. This is the point where traffic from Fort Scott, KS and north joins with traffic from Tulsa and southwest.

    Nichols is a sorry shadow of of it's former self. Back in the day, KC (via Fort Scott) bound passenger trains ROARED across the diamond and the inbound and outbound trains to Oklahoma hissed around the south side quadrant of the junction. There was a nearby drive-in theatre and you could hear a dozen trains go by during a double feature!
