According to the South Dakota State Historical Society, this line was abandoned in March, 1981, not 1969. I posted the date 1969 on a picture I posted on Facebook, and received comments from members who said they remember the railroad still going in 1980 when they were in school in Henry,SD. I wonder where the date 1969 originated, and is it possible another company acquired the tracks?
