Obviously there is some set-up for rail service to the grain producers, but I think most of the railroad cargo from this east end of Kansas might be coal.
Looks like this grain storage & shipping facility is falling by the way side. Many of the Rail Roads won't bother unless you can put together at least a 50 car unit-train, so a lot of the grain is being shipped by truck, in particular, a lot of the custom harvesters truck directly to the mills or the shipping ports, in addition the Government is not paying for long term grain storage any more so some of these facilities are of no use these days. I guess they call it progress & times change customs as we knew them.
Well, I won't be adding this to my vacation itinerary. Thanks anyway.
