    Bob - Welcome!

    My son and I spent a lot of time watching the action at Lindenwood in the SLSF days.

    As a kid, we had family friends in Sullivan who ran a paint store across the street from the tracks. Enjoyed our visits and seeing the F's and GP's come through.

    I used to hold my breath going through Sullivan on 1522 because nobody seemed to pay attention to the grade crossing signals and would push their luck.

    Going through Sullivan was described as "white knuckle time" in the film "Ozark Country Cab Ride" (Pentrex or Green Frog, I can't remember which). By the way, welcome to the group.

    I don't know a whole lot about that part of the state, I'm more into the Ash Grove sub (between Ft. Scott and Springfield) and my fictional railroad the Iantha Branch

    Some where up by Sullivan, there used to be a cut, that had brick work under it to hold up the ground. When I went by there it was a real neat area. I was told, it was work by the WPA. I may try to model it. I have not seen many places like it.
