Remarks & Notes 
TThe coaling tower at Marceline still stands the test of time. I didn't find a build date for this tower, but did find that the round cement part was used to hold sand. Cars of sand or coal would be spotted in the covered areas next to the coal or sand towers. The contents of the cars would be dumped through grates onto conveyors and lifted into the storage areas. Marceline once served as headquarters for the Missouri Division for the Santa Fe. Not much is left of the yard here, the headquarters is now a museum, and trains blast thru here with crew runs between Fort Madison/Galesburg and Kansas City. Here a westbound Q-train rolls down main #1 just west of downtown Marceline with containers traffic bound for San Bernardino, CA.
