> Fantastic pictures and look back to another time! What is the current situation of the Colorado segment between NA junction and Towner?


Service appears to be very infrequent and this newspaper article leaves the impression that there are some plans for it:

That's the segment that a father-and-son farmer team tried to resurrect along with Tennessee Pass, but they didn't get very far. Any shipments from Towner east seem to flow toward eastern connections, thanks to a mixing of ex-MP and ex-ATSF lines. Here's a map of the WATCO K&O RR:

They've yanked out about a sixty-mile section between Healy and McCracken and everything is gone east of Geneseo.

> Does the state own it?

I'm not sure. I think so.

> Are there any movements on it?

Freight car storage maybe.

> Is the ABS system still active on any of the MP Pueblo line?

I highly doubt it. No need since you can count all of K&O's trains at any give time on one hand.

> Did your train switch over to the former Rock Island/SP at Herrington or were they still using the MP through Ossawatomie into KC?

We switched to the ex-Rock Island at Herrington. The line through Ossawatomie was already abandoned by then. I was really amazed at those sharp curves between Topeka and North Topeka.

You're welcome.
