This coaling tower in Cushing was never used, as the steam engines in this area were oil-fired, not coal-fired. Photo by Mike Palmer, June 2011.

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.
Midwest city,, OK
