Description 

Pier and abutments of former railroad parallel to KC,CC & St. J Interurban.

1914 map shows Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul RR. This line moved to a more north alignment in 1930. By 1942 the original alignment shows as a spur from northeast of town to (coal?) mines on the SW edge of town. This section to the west of Mosby was not shown.
