Just drove thru Hudsonville on Chicago Drive and the siding is still full of stack platforms. Not sure if they came from Wyoming yard but the stack platforms didn't come out of Hudsonville.

The tracks are still present up to the town of Lawrence. Beyond Lawrence, the rail is torn out and the crossings paved over.
