This track was home to one of the truly "classic" stone depots which is located in Shawnee. It has been saved as it has been declared a historic landmark.
Does anyone know when the line from Meeker to Cushing was shut down? I have coon hunted along the old line for the past 40 plus years, I remember when the tracks were still there but I don't remember ever seeing a train come thorugh.
