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.
History and personal account of the Lincoln to Union branchline:
This line also has a local that operates daily bringing inbound phosphoric acid to the PCS feed grade phosphate plant at Weeping Water and pulling feed grade corn from the Midwest Elevator at Manley.
