I read Mr. Bird's book recently, and would recommend it to others interested in the line.

I also grew up with the ruins of the main trestle over Ramsey Branch literally out the back door of my house! Wish I had a picture of what it looked like while it was still in service.

This line went right through the property I grew up at. A rail station was thought to be incorporated into the house I lived in; directly east of Springfork Lake.

Originally built as the narrow guage Sedalia, Warsaw, and Southern 1ine in 1880. The line was acquired by the Missouri Pacific in 1890 and standard gauged in 1902.It was abandoned in late 1946, with the last train on August 31 of that year. Details of the line along with 110 photos can be seen in the book "Rails to The Osage" published by Ken Bird in 2011. See www.klbird.com for ordering information.

I noticed the map is incomplete. It shows nothing of the tracks that went through Warsaw. I've seen pics of the tracks behind what was a grainery and is now the Corner Gardens restaunt. If you look close behind the glass shop you can see where the tracks went. So why no maps of town? I walked a lot of the old roadbed.
