    I just found out myself shooting pictures for CTC's DINA contest in October. The Sargent siding southeast of Cabool has been replaced. It starts just north of the railroad crossing in Sargent and goes north on a mostly tangent curving to the right and out of sight. The roadway (paved) follows it most of the way. I understand this was a siding years ago but was removed several decades prior to being reinstalled last year. This was also the location of a runby when 1522 traversed the route in the early 90's. Thought you might like to know.

    About the Kansas City, Ozarks & Southern mentioned in note 4 - was this a completely separate entity from the Frisco? I have only found some vague, sketchy information on this railroad. I have seen two pictures, both of a heisler locomotive and short mixed train. I have seen this railroad attributed to being built by the Frisco, a Frisco branchline, or as an independant railroad. As best as I can tell it was built around 1910 and lasted until 1935. Have also seen a reference to the locomotive as being leased from the Frisco, which does not make sense if a) it was narrow gauge and b) it was a geared locomotive. Who can fill in the blanks?
  4. Kansas City Ozarks & Southern RY became Ozark Southern RY. Captive customer of Frisco but not a part of it. SPV Railroad Atlas shows the line was standard guage.
