The City will be removing the old Folgers tracks from 5th street in the next few weeks
The rails by West 7th street lofts? Those are the only exposed ones I know of downtown

The east of Grand section is the alley east of Grand from 3rd to 5th. The air filter company couldn't use their alley for trucks because the city wouldn't/couldn't make the railroad maintain it

centered on 19th, the alley between Grand and Walnut. This one is quite long. Many of the crossroad alleys were built for rail. There might be other segments buried under concrete

West of Wyandotte in the alley parallel to 2nd. It's probably the last remnant of that yard

Indep Ave ends at 5th St just west of Wyandotte. 5th continues onto Beardsley.
Google maps is correct on the name

Has anyone located any discussion here from around the end of 2014 when this RFP came back? I found where we discussed it initially in June of 2014 and Collison wrote an article in the Star. But it seems odd (and unlikely) we never discussed it again, I think I'm just having a hard time with the search.
