The MC did at one time run from Vassar all the way to Owendale. The segment from Bach to Owendale was abandoned in 1942. IIRC, the section from Bach to Colling was alive into the middle 1970's (say 1976-1977). The section from Colling to Caro saw traffic as late as 2015. OSHA killed the Rail Service on this segment in that Vita Plus (Elevator in Colling) did not have the Harness System for loading cars. Presently, the Caro-Colling segment is used for "hopper" storage.
