    Hello, fellow members--

    My name is Rich Steenwyk and I'm from Milwaukee, WI (with current family ties to the Kansas City area though). I recently became interested in the Frisco since it was the operator of the Fairgrounds Branch in KC. I'm in the research and planning stages now and hope to start construction on a layout focused on this branch. I'm also keeping track of my progress on a blog at: So far, I've found great information here. Thanks for sharing and I hope I can contribute some of my research back to the larger group.

    Rich, Welcome Aboard. I'm Keith Robinson, a model railroading friend of your brother, Mark Steenwyk here in KC. I know we've met.

    Rich, there is plenty of information on the Fairgrounds District on this site, and I am sure you remember Mark Davidson (mark) who is very well versed in detail about the Fairgrounds District and also "The Alley". If we can help, let us know.
    Be sure to use the search engine on this site to help direct you to Industry Schematics for the Hill.

    Also take a look at:

    I did a quick scan of the site, I can't quickly locate the Industry Schematics for the Hill and the Alley, but I know Mark Davidson and Rick McClellan have copies. I think I may have them scanned into a pdf on my computer at home, but I am in my home town of Cape Girardeau until later this week.

    Welcome. Lots of good information here and good folks. Don't be shy in asking questions. If it's Frisco, someone here knows.
