Climb aboard the track back in time with Show-Me Katy. This book focuses on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad's route between Parsons, KS, Sedalia, MO, and St. Louis, MO. The Katy Trail State Park, built on the roadbed of the old Missouri-Kansas-Texas (Katy) Railroad, is one of the most popular hiking and biking corridors in the country. But, long before the trail, there was a network of rails with a vibrant history!
There's plenty of colorful Katy action with a special emphasis on the railroad's final 20 years of operation. More than two hundred rare color photos, detailed maps, and informative graphics tell the story of this often-forgotten corner of the Katy system. Nearly every community along the line is represented, as are the branch lines to El Dorado Springs, Moberly, and Columbia.
