Frisco Weaubleau Creek Bridge
Posted August 1, 2016, by Kelly McClanahan

Line was used by several railroads, ending up as the Frisco. The was abandoned with the building of Truman Lake. Just south of here, and leading into is is the Weableau Horse shoe curve, the tightest curve on the system. It still can be seen on satellite view.
