Hi all, new member.  I have been looking for sometime for a rural branch line to model, and living in Kansas it seemed a good place to start.  I am pretty serious about going forward with the St. Francis branch.  I have acquired a BN track diagram (you can still see most of the tracks on Google), a BWL SD9 and a troop kitchen car for local freight.  I have also made a decent stab at scratch building the unique deport from photographs.

It appears along with the two large grain elevators, there was a fuel dealer and a feed mill across from the depot.  And being pretty much out there by itself I am sure the team track got some use.  Does anyone have any additional information about the branch, especially traffic potential.

I am concentrating early-mid 1960's box car era.  But one thing I like is that not much has changed, and I can pull a couple of vehicles off the streets and advance into the later hopper car era.

Thanks in advance for any information.
