    Karl--I've just been skimming through the station list, what page(s) did you find those notes on?

    Thanks, Tom

    Thanks for sharing. Question though. What does it mean by prepay? Second why is their stations listed that aren't stations at all. Example: where I noticed this at was Ash Grove sub. Between Liberal and Lamar 3 of the 4 "stations" listed aren't stations. The only one that is is Iantha. Vincent, Wimmer and Hornaday where all very small stock yards that were built along the tracks when KSFS&G first built the line through there in 1880, and none of them where there by 1886. So why list something that hasn't existed in 30+ years?

    I think the meaning of this one (and someone can correct me if I am wrong) is that there isn't an agent at the station, so you can't pay COD (Cash On Delivery).

    See http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/station

    A station is "a regular stopping place in a transportation route" (see the first part of definition 3A above).

    While this can refer to a structure at a regular stopping point, there is no requirement for a structure to exist.

    I think you have to understand that for a railroad, a station is a posted sign, there does not have to be a depot for there to be a station.
