What railroad?
(Click the Frisco herald to visit   and   Click the map for the Wiki article)

Kansas City, Missouri
Specifically, the near southwest side, right near the border with Kansas.
(The dark gray lines are my gross approximation of the trackage)

Why this particular rail line?
I was attracted to this operation after seeing the remnants at the northern end from a distance on a few occasions and, upon further inspection via Google Maps, discovered that there was actually a mile of industrial track.  As I've come to recognize the reality of my railroad modeling endeavors -- e.g. limited space, time, budget, etc forecasted over the next several years -- I've refocused my interests on smaller prototypes that still provide interesting modeling opportunities and operational interest.  In short, this is buildable and it has potential to be fun along the way.
