Album Info:It's one of the most famous train stations in the U.S., and deservedly so! Union Station in Kansas City was once one of the busiest stations in the United States, owing to its central position in the country. Like many of these, the station fell into disuse and disrepair in the 1970s, losing train service entirely in 1985. Fortunately, it has since been renovated, and now retains its lustre as a central element of Kansas City's entertainment district. Six trains stop there daily-the Missouri River Runner, which runs twice a day between KC and St. Louis, and the Southwest Chief, which makes an eastbound and westbound stop in the middle of the night. Those of you not from the Midwest might be surprised to know that the station is actually located in Missouri! There is a Kansas City, Kansas, and a Kansas City, Missouri, and the Missouri one is the bigger one. Why did they call it that if it's in Missouri? Don't ask! They just did. Anyway, "that which they call a rose by any other name would still be just as sweet," and Union Station is a sweet place to visit if you're a train fan! There's a pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks, and tons of trains pass beneath a day! I lost count on this particular occasion-hopefully, posting the shots will help me remember how many I saw. Enjoy viewing!

KCS 34
Title:  KCS 34
Description:  Built for the Kansas City Southern, right? Wrong! This was originally a Canadian National engine, but the Kansas City Southern later got a hold of it and used it as backup power for the Southern Belle Excursion train. Then, it was sent to the station, where it now sits on display. Funny, all the Canadian Nationals in the southern Midwest seem to be getting repainted http://railfan3145.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=4984453

Description:  The best part about the station is the Freight House Pedestrian Bridge. Built in 1892 by the Kansas City Southern, the bridge served on the riverfront for many years in Kansas City. It was later moved to Union Station to save it from demolition and now makes the perfect spot to watch trains!
