KS Shortline Question
Posted by SFbrkmn on Wednesday, August 09, 2017 6:39 PM

Does anyone know the date of when Central KS Ry discontinued and embargoed track between Sun City-Medicine Lodge? The STB official abandonment came in 2003. What I'm wanting is how far prior to that is when train service ended.

Sun City to Medicine Lodge quit running 7/1/02 (V&S, not CKR)  AB603_1_x

Attica to Sun City was sold by CKR to V&S (the crooks at A&K) 12-7-2000 FD-33964

Attica to Medicine Lodge never technically abandoned, is the Medicine Lodge Division of V&S Railway (Affiliated Railroads, Inc.)



Mudchicken Nothing is worth taking the risk of losing a life over. Come home tonight in the same condition that you left home this morning in. Safety begins with ME.... cinscocom-west
