On a normal day, Amtrak’s Southwest Chief stops at the station in Lawrence.
However, it is not this station.
The November 13th edition of the Chief was detoured over the Union Pacific line between Hutchinson and Kansas City due to a derailment. Although the UP line goes through Topeka and Lawrence, the station stops at these locations were cancelled.
Technically, this is old news, but I’ll go ahead and post it anyway. Back on September 18, Public officials had a ceremonial ribbon cutting for the new US 59 freeway at Baldwin Junction. Here are my photos:
Last Saturday, I had a small group of fellow road enthusiests in Lawrence for a “roadgeek meet.” Basically, we all get together and had lunch, then toured the area roads. For this meet, I chose K-10, US 59, and the new Kansas Turnpike Bridge. I don’t have any pics from the latter. During our outing, I spotted a gaffe on US 59. I did not get a picture during the meet; however, I was able to return to get a picture on Monday.
EDIT: Re-worked all image thumbnails to reflect new gallery on flickr
I have (slowly) been working on uploading my pictures from the archives… I’m now up to January 2002. This set of spirit squad photos was taken January 5th, at the first KU Women’s game of the (calendar) year.
