Finished work on the Emporia Sub yesterday and started traveling to Reading, Kansas on BNSF's Topeka Sub.

Last night we tied up on a track next to the Amtrak station in Lawrence, Kansas.

This morning we traveled to Osage City and tied up on the siding for the night.

I got these pics today

This old ATSF boxcar was in an old yard near the Amtrak station

On the other end was this BN caboose; possibly used as a shoving platform.

That boxcar is definitely interesting. It’s pretty hard to come by rolling stock like that anymore.
