STRANGE RAILROAD TRAFFIC BEING RE-ROUTED THROUGH FT. LEAVENWORTH MILITARY BASE
Hello, we have recently moved here to the country, and would like to give
you a little heads up. The railroad tracks run along I-70 and the Kaw
River out here by Lawrence, KS, and Kansas City, KS.
The Northern line out of KC has been closed since yesterday, and all rail
traffic is detoured through Lawrence since then. The Northern line runs
through the Leavenworth Military Base, and around the prisons. Very
interesting. Even curiouser.... there is usually one train a day going
west, and one going east. These trains have been running non stop both
directions all day long. We know this because the trains blow whistles at
every intersection, and every time they pass each other. The whistles are
blowing right now, (12:43 AM CDT 9-11-12) almost non stop. I'm not sure
what this may mean, but it's highly irregular... something is up, and it's
having to do with the military base.
