Property — railroad easements — reversion

Robert and Helen Kees appeal a judgment granting Northern States Power Company fee title to a strip of land on which a railroad was constructed in 1882. They contend the land was granted for railroad purposes by the federal government in the 1850s, and they are entitled to exercise a reversionary interest in the property because it was abandoned in the late 1970s. They also argue, in the alternative, that they have adversely possessed the land. We reject these arguments and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
