Sheffield Tower

The now unused Sheffield Interlocking Tower sits beside the Kansas City Terminal's Sheffield Flyover. Sheffield Tower was operated by the KCT but has stood unused for many years. The Sheffield flyover was built to help facilitate the movement of trains through the area, since there are multiple railroad lines that intersected with each other at ground level. The flyover carries trains over multiple Union Pacific, and Kansas City Southern lines.

  1. Nice shot! Every time I see your KC shots I think I need to get there and explore. It's not all that far. Wish I had more time.

    1. Thanks, Shelly. Yes, you should really try to get over to KC for a photo excursion, or two. It's a great town, and not just for railroad photography.
