Thank you!

The Lincoln to Union branch service was interrupted when a bridge west of Weeping Water was washed out, so Weeping Water to Lincoln was abandoned about 1984. Unoin (Omaha to KC main line)to Weeping Water still see trains that then go up another branch to Louisville which has a large cement plant. I'm guessing it sees 2 or 3 trains a week.
