KCS 4143 glides into NS Avondale Yard with grain empties.



storyThis train of empty grain cars moving into the NS yard is likely going to head over to Hardin, MO, to be loaded with grain for export from the Gulf coast on the KCS. Ironically, the grain elevator in the background of this image is abandoned and slated for eventual demolition if the funding can be acquired by the city to do so. Unfortunately, it is completely surrounded by railroad mainline and yard tracks and the property has zero development potential. However, it is falling apart and considered dangerous, so will see the wrecking ball sooner or later.
