For well over 100 years, therewas a close and usually mutually beneficial relationship between the City of Parsons, Kansas, and what became the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad Company (M-K-T or "theKaty"). Parsons, located on rolling prairie land near the southeast corner of Kansas, dependedlargely on the Katy for its basic employment, those jobs which brought moneyinto the community. During the first half of that period it was almost a textbook example of arailroad town. Covering the years 1865 to 2012, the authors relate thefascinating story of how Parsons was the site of the Katy's main locomotiverepair shop until its merger with the Union Pacific in 1988.
