The former passenger station at Coyle, OK, now in use as a local police station. No evidence of rails or right-of-way are visible. Photo by Mike Palmer, June 2011.

This line existed in two segments, with the portion along the Cimarron River originally constructed as the Eastern Oklahoma Railway, giving E.O. Junction its name. This is a cotton growing region in the state; the rail line was abandoned after the local roads were improved.

Thanks to Mike Palmer for contributing information about this route.

South bank of the Cimarron for the most part east from Guthrie via Camp Russell, to Pleasant Valley, ( north of the convenience store at Langston off hwy 33) and on to Coyle and Perkins. You can see the ROW clearly at the I35 crossing of the Cimarron.

I am curious. As I see the ROW moving through Coyle at the now police station I am also curious about the abandoned trestle bridge remains clearly visible to the north nearer the river. When travelling across the new bridge over the Cimarron, the trestle timber bridges are clearly visible to the west of the bridge, particularly when going south during the fall and winter when foliage is absent. The east side of the new bridge has remnants as well.

When viewed from Bing or Google maps, these trestles are clearly visible and it appears there are more than one.

Are these part of the railroad and if so what did they do and why were they there?
