The Wabash, Frisco, and Pacific Railroad Association was devastated by major flooding.
Recent historic flooding of the Meramec river has decimated the entire area encluding the grounds of the Wabash, Frisco, and Pacific Association. Although attempts to save the locomotive engines where made the raising waters were too much for the volunteers to save the the 12 inch gauge live Steam Railroad engines. The flood has ravaged the entire grounds and storage facility. Many long hours of volunteer work and dedication will be needed to revive both the steam locomotives and grounds to be ready for this spring. Please help by contributing to the association that has helps bring years of memories to our region. These volunteers have given so much in the past to make your visits truly memorable. They need your help now. A GoFundMe page has been setup in honor of helping those who will provide the hard work needed to bring the Wabash, Frisco, and Pacific back from the flood of 2015.
Progress continues on phase two. This is the first part that will give the railroad a reverse loop. I now have about 200′ of rail laid and ballasted. I also added the ties for a future switch that will be phase four, but that will probably be in summer of 2017. I need to do some measuring, but it will bring the mainline to about 3,600′ of continuous main line. Here are a few pics of the progress from last week and today.

This is a really cool video. There is also a great transfer table.
