It's Pittsburg, KS (no Steel City h). Note Illinois Railway Museum misidentified as Illinois Railroad Museum.

Not the worst typo or wrong description I've seen given. Sometimes it's funny to read a story a journalist has written on a subject they aren't familiar with.

"Journalist" my derriere! I believe the article is nothing but "search engine candy" for asbestos/mesothelioma. That is the hottest keyword in the entire world of paid web advertising. http://www.cwire.org/2006/03/23/updated ... -keywords/

I deal with search engine spam for a living. It's appalling. This kind of stuff is so prevalent and so well SEO'ed (manipulated to rank high in search engines) that you can hardly find anything good anymore.

A handful of volunteers with some aluminum roof flashing and stainless steel wire or a large hose clamp could get that stack covered in less than 30 minutes. A few weekends with some wire brushes, paint and hard wax grease could work minor miracles in preservation. Are any locals interested ? Will the city allow it ?
