According to this map: http://tacnet.missouri.org/history/state04/jackson3.gif
this was the original alignment of the KCS. In 1929 the KCS created a new RoW branching off at Grandview and going NE along Blue Ridge then heading NW east of Swope Park, rejoining the old KCS track at Leeds. Maps after 1930 show this RoW carrying the Frisco "High Line" north of Grandview to the Blue River where it follows the Blue valley to Leeds. The Frisco track from Grandview north to Leeds, including this section, has been abandoned and much of it wiped out by new construction.
