i thought something was going on around there. im glad it is getting back on track, for the train is my new mood of transportation. i been going to union station to catch the train, because i heard the lawrence depot was a hangout for the homeless and was kinda scared to be waiting on a train there by myself. im excited. that is good new to me.

I grew up VERY close to this railroad tracker. I was the Barber's Daughter at 444 Locust Street, next to the El Matador. Once I handed the "caboose guy" the message on a big stick. I loved the railroad and slept better with the trains going by. Every time I get back to Lawrence, I go there. I would LOVE to take a train there. I remember when Eisenhower was carried over this track when he died. They were very careful not to tell anyone so no one would be turning out in mass. I also remember train wrecks and how careful we always were when crossing the tracks. Thanks so much for posting this. See you in the Spring! Iris, Daughter Of Barber Ira D. Cripe
