    Perhaps an old locomotive too.

    The Augusta kansas depot is still standing and is being used by the chamber. Therefore, it is still possible to visit.

    The ex NI&N / ex MP freight house still stands in New Iberia LA. The NI&N was built as a Frisco venture in 1909 but was spun off of the Frisco in 1914. If that building was built before 1914, likely, it could be a Frisco design.... or maybe Rock Island. Some of the depots, all gone now, on the NOT&M mainline were Yoakum Rock Island designs predating the GCL spin off.

    It is in this album. I can’t seem to make it separate by itself.

    Here’s a 1980s photo of the New Iberia LA freight house still in service. “Is it”. or “is it not” a Frisco building?

    To the Missouri list you can add Puxico and West Plains (and Illmo, per Chris Abernathy.). And to the Arkansas list you can add Mammoth Springs.

    FWIW: The Frisco depot still exists here at Poteau, OK, though modified somewhat by the city/state for their use.

    I can get a picture of it and post here when the time/weather allows.

  9. New Iberia: Originally built by the T&NO, owned by the Louisiana & Delta and used as the railroad’s primary offices. Additionally, a former MP freight depot here still stands,.

    In short, in New Iberia the MP and T&NO were two separate railroads, each with a succession of corporate predecessors. The T&NO has nothing to do with the former MP freight house shown above.

    The MP line, a 50 mile branch off of the NOT&M, itself a Frisco subsidiary at one point, was originally built as a Frisco sponsored venture. Here’s the detailed story:

    Once I saw, but have not been able to locate again, a photo of that building in 1919, but that is still not early enough to place in before 1914 in Frisco Times.
     
  11. Add the Bentonville, Arkansas depot..... I believe its currently used by Chamber of Commerce

    It is being used by an architecture firm.
