    No and sorry all. I posted as West Point AL and it should be Mississippi. I think this was old GM&O trackage and then Mid South and now KCS.

    About 30 miles south of West Point is a little place called Artesia MS. KCS has a small yard there and it is where they interchange with the C&G. I tried man times to catch action there with basically no luck. Here are a couple of shots I got at the yard

    These are all very interesting shots. (y) In 45 years of railfanning, I've somehow never seen a KCS unit. o_O

    I saw some, fifty years ago, when I lived in NW Louisiana. The white paint scheme. But had no camera at that time. :(
