I lived there off and on for 23 years. In 2000, I started a walking routine and pretty much settled on a path which I like to take every so often. Grandview is a working class town on the south side of the Metro.
The line of the former Frisco passes through Grandview still, though I think it is used as a spur for the Kansas City Southern.

I was having a conversation a few days ago about graffiti art and the rolling canvas we see every day on the rails. So, while I waited for this train to pass, I checked out the roll by gallery.
