I was wondering if anyone knows are there any plans on the UP Sedalia Sub for a siding extension in the Lee's Summit to at least Greenwood and/or Pleasant Hill? I travel one (or two) of the crossings, and they have it seems to be "extra" panels (example, the one crossing has a total of nine panels), some being much larger than the others. Also, two sections of 39 foot rail, two bundles of pre-gauged ties with tie plates, and then another bundle of regular ties. The same set-up is about a mile or so to thesouth (railroad east) at another crossing. I am beginning to wonder if they are not perhaps going to put in a siding extension. I do know that from Pleasant Hill to Strasburg there is a siding extension planned, and there is also a high speed-rail corridor being planned.
