Point of Interest

This former Louisiana and Arkansas Railroad mainline was built in 1881 and abandoned by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad in 1940.

There is another line with gates and lights next to the former ROW if you look at street view.

This line was originally narrow gauge.

It shared a Union Depot with the H&TC in McKinney for passenger service.

I have a B&W photo of the last L&AT train leaving McKinney circa 1941-42.

Looking at an old map the track didn't merge with DGNO in Mckinney but it ran parallel to the current DGNO a few blocks apart. I didnt find a map to see how far north it ran seperate.

Could be that The MKT narrow gauge line went directly to an Onion shed and station for transfer to standard gauge trains. However, I do know that after the line was converted to standard gauge, it connected to the L&A in Farmesville. It was also narrow gauge at one time.
