Buffalo Gap to Hot Springs


Map submitted by Andrew Laverdiere.

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!

The Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad, a subsidiary of the Chicago and North Western Railroad, constructed this railway line between Buffalo Gap and Hot Springs in 1890. After the FE&MV formally merged into the C&NW in 1903, the C&NW abandoned this line in 1939.

the depot is still in Hot Springs & at one time was billed as the World's Smallest depot

The superlative about the Hot Springs Station is that it was supposedly the world's smallest Union Station - i.e. a single station serving multiple rail lines. In this case, it was the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad and the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad.
