BNSF is to demolish the coaling towers that are in the Marceline, Mo yard within the next month. Go get your final pictures ASAP! :(

Also do not trespass in the yards to get your photos! You can get photos from walking up the Gracia Ave overpass, by parking at the city pool, etc.

Did something in particular prompt the railroad to demolish the coal chute now versus any other time in the last 65 years?

Did the city stop using the structure for salt/sand storage for winter??  They were using it for that in the past.

Maybe someone with a drone will get some close-up shots of them to add to the bridge shots.  Beats trespassing on foot!

I’m not sure. I know down the line a few towns they were offered low or no taxes on a new garage so they tore down a beautiful depot and put up a metal building about a year or two ago.
