Grain elevator in Clearfield, Iowa.
J Pete Hedgpeth: Clearfield was located on the old Keouk & Western...Humeston and Sheandoah line. It was just east of Conway on the Creston-St. Joe line. The junction where the lines crossed was called "Merle" and the line west of Merle was abandoned sometime in the 40's. IIRC the line from Merl Jct remained almost until the Creston branch was abandoned in the80's. Clearfieled was served by a mixed local which ran between Creston & St. Joe on alternate days.
Jerry Krug: J Pete Hedgpeth Which modern railroad served the line until abandonment? CB&Q/BN?
Dennis DeBruler commented on Jerry's comment
According to the 2005 SPV Map, it was a CB&Q route that was abandoned by BN. The photo is evidently contemporary and that rectangular elevator is still standing.https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer..
