--------------------

The agent in Kansas City was too lazy to make entries in the Shippers'
Guide, so I have had to rely on the guides of the CMStP&P and CGW for
Kansas City info. They show:

[per CMStP&P, 1943]

KANSAS CITY, MO.
Philips Petroleum Co.
Sinclair Refining Co.
Standard Oil Co.

[per CGW, 1957]
Socony-Mobil Pipeline Terminal

-----------------

Back to the UP book. In addition to the above, under the heading of
"PETROLEUM PRODUCTS" are a zillion oil dealers, as well as these entries
for "bulk stations" in McPherson:

McPHERSON, KANSAS
Standard Oil Co., bulk sta.
Texaco Co., bulk station.
Sinclair Refiing Co., do.
Phillips Refining Co., do.
Conoco Bulk Station, do.
White Eagle Co., do.


I hope this begins to help you (or others interested in oil traffic on the
UP.)


Regards,

-Jeff
