Crossing the Rock  Contributor's Pick!       
A northbound UP train on the ex MKT approaches the diamond for the one time Rock Island Choctaw Route, now the Arkansas & Oklahoma, seen in the foreground. AOK runs the line from here to a connection with the KCS at Howe. They subsequently acquired most of the right of way from here to Seminole and OKC. I'd love to see an MKT switcher squealing around that connecting track with a cut for the Rock, or a Rock GP 7 doing the same for the Katy.
