    Monett, Mo today I have found all that remains of the passenger station foundation, platforms, and the existing Frisco/BNSF station for employees

    My grandpa, Bud Boyne, was a freight conductor for the Frisco. His runs were between Tulsa and Monett. He never took trains into Springfield. They’d always change crews in Monett then go on from there.

    As a kid, I always thought it was strange that they wouldn’t just go on to Springfield. I guess there were either regulations or union agreements that prevented it.

    My grandpa didn’t mind it though as he had family in the area. In fact he was born in Monett and his dad, who was an engineer for the Frisco, was transferred to Tulsa just as they moved the main yard from Sapulpa to Tulsa.

    If anyone out there happens to have known or worked with my grandpa I’d appreciate any stories you might want to pass on about him.

    Terry,

    He retired in 1980 just before the merger and passed away in 1982. His given name was Harold but most folks called him Bud or Buddy Boyne. I don't recall him ever running through to Springfield though. I think he always stopped at Monett.

    I would bet you guys would have worked together as Tulsa - Monett was the only run he did.

    I remember asking him if the BN and Frisco would ever merge after I heard the news of the potential merger and he was adament that it would never happen. Oh well...
    Regards,
    Terry

    Terry,

    In talking with my dad last night I discovered that in his later years, my grandpa did in fact make the runs through to Springfield.

    He didn't like that change at all because when he stopped at Monett he could stay with family rather than having to pay for a motel. Also he was out on the run longer when they went up to Springfield as the layover was longer.
    Regards,
    Terry
