Southbound KCS excursion?

Postby mobarbq » Sun May 02, 2010 9:44 am

This train was stopped in the Joplin yards near the Vernon Sigars viaduct (seen in the background) Friday 30 April 2010. There wasn't anything about it in the news. Does anyone recognize it and perhaps know what the destination was, etc? (not my photo)

That would be the KCS buisness train. They get their moneys' worth out of it too! I've never heard of KCS running any excursions with it, but they do run a Christmas train that visits cities along the line for static displays along with it. I'm sure I'd hear about excursions! My father (KCS 1969-Present) and my grandfather (KCS 1954-1988) keep tabs on the train for me!
See! That there's yer problem!
