This was not C&NW. C&NW was west of Springfield. Just east of this area is Iles Junction and what was an iron trestle.

KCS appears to own the line now.

Actually this carried another branch of the GM & O that went southwest out of Springfield. It lines up with the current line that runs over south of Jacksonville. Not sure who the line belongs to now.

This wasn't on MacArthur Blvd. It was over the ITRR right of way that went south to St. Louis. It was abandoned sometime in the late 60's when they dismantled the long iron trestle over the GM&O that went east along Stanford Ave.
