GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This MKT "Panhandle Line" served primarily agricultural areas, was largely abandoned in the 1970s. It connected with The Beaver, Meade and Englewood Railroad at Forgan.

Thanks to Mike Palmer for contributing information about this route.
