In this view looking south from Nevada, Missouri's East Austin Boulevard bridge, the track at far right is the Missouri-Kansas-Texas St. Louis, Missouri-Parsons, Kansas main, with the Missouri Pacific's Kansas City-Joplin, Missouri line curving off to the left. The MP maintained a considerable interchange yard here at one time, now (2017) gone. Also gone is the Katy's St. Louis line north of North Clinton, Missouri and south of Fort Scott, Kansas. Today the remaining lines through here are operated by the Missouri & North Arkansas Railway.
