Fort Scott, KS to Rich Hill, MO

Point of Interest

Map submitted by Tim Thorp.

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 line was heading towards Sadelia when Missouri Pacific took over.

This line was well engineered and the old ones noted it ran fast. It is a shame it was downgraded in 1962 and traffic rerouted via Kansas City and Yates Center.

By using Google Earth, I was able to trace the line all the way to Parsons, KS

After consulting a quadmap, I made a mistake, and got two lines confused. There is a MKT that goes from Fort Scott to Parsons.
