Oh boy, you know no matter how much you check something mistakes always seem to slip thru. 1) 1909-Lowell to Limedale, true this was Monte Ne RR, actually Arkansas, Oklahoma & Western RR (a pet project of mine), when they took over Monte Ne they wanted a direct connection so they tunnelled under Frisco about 2-miles north of Lowell and abandoned Lowell to Limedale. 2) 1918-Kansas City & Memphis RY, my mistake those were codes I put in to catch my eye because I need to put the correct predecessor company in, but forgot before posting. This Kansas City & Memphis RY is not to be confused with the Kansas City & Memphis RR which was inc. in Missouri on 11/9/1872 and sold to Springfield & Western Missouri RR on 2/24/1879. 3) 1927 Black Mountain & Eastern RR (Combs, Cass & Eastern as of 5/13/1916) another pet project, the only info on this I could find on this was from the book "Shortlines RR's of Arkansas" by Clifton E. Hull. I understand some of the roadbed around Frazier was converted to a forest road by the CCC in the 1930's. 4) 1942-McNair, AR.-Ft.Gibson, OK., now this clears up a bit of confusion. I ran across the 7/28/1942 abandonment date but a better source stated that the track removal crews began work at Westville, OK. on 7/10/1942 and worked in opposite directions from Westville. Since the goverment needed the steel for WWII this makes a lot of sense. It wouldn't take a crew more than 2-3 weeks to pull up 45-miles of track. It's true that officially the abandonment began at McNair (a suburb of Fayetteville) westward, however in later years the portion of the predecessor company (Ozark & Cherokee Central) from the Fayetteville depot south & west to a lumber yard just east of the SLSF overpass was abandoned. The portion from there to McNair was still in service as of 3/26/96 ironically ending in another lumber yard. Hopefully I'll get to work on the new abandonment list in the next week or two. Roger.
