I visited Hillsboro KS last week. Is this the line that served that town?

In response to Mr Stan Jefferson question, Yes these are the old tracks you saw in Hillsboro. I grew up with the railroad running within site out my back door in Marion. They were part of the old Santa Fe RR and was taken over by the Central Kansas RY, which removed then when they quite operating the trackage.
