2010: Railfanning East of Town; Day#07a

15 Oct

On this day we pack up and move to our next base camp to Wichita, KS; but, it will take us the entire day to get there with all the stops planned.

First stop, Topeka!!!!!!!

We first head for the AT&SF Passenger Depot which is now used by Amtrak. It’s also near the railroad faculties operated today by BNSF.

We will next head around the BNSF Facility to find the old AT&SF Bridge and in doing so we will find a Santa Fe Rotary Snow Plow; Score!!!!!!!

Next we head over into Union Pacific territory by finding the Great Overland Station and then track down the UP Bridge that also spans the Kansas River.

We had one more place to locate in Topeka; the Old Prairie Town Museum (Ward-Med Historic Site). Here we find the Ex-Pauline, KS AT&SF Combination Depot as well as Caboose #1552.

Time to head for the next stop…
