BN Mansfield Local Near Palisades

Blair says:

"Low rumble of Burlington Northern's upbound Withrow turn disturbs the hissssss-tap-tap-tap-hissss of pivot crop sprinklers traversing the Mansfield Branch on August 1, 1983. This was the branch where 40 foot boxcars were used to haul grain from rural elevators. The branch was abandoned less than two years later."
