Rail Activity at Former MKT Shop in Parsons, KS
Author: crazy_train_999

Hello...Does anyone know what rail-related work is being done at the former MKT shop in Parsons, KS?  I found a website for TM Track Machines, and it appears they do railcar work (MOW flat cars and ballast cars, perhaps more).  I am thinking about trying to model the MOW flat cars that have the foldable bridge or ramp that guides the tampers, regulators, etc. between the railcar and track level, and I believe they are made (or installed) here.  If anyone has information or photos you could share, I'd appreciate it.  Also, does anyone know if this is where the latest Amtrak ballast cars are being reworked?  Thank you!
