I love how the LJW is supposed to be people's personal secretary and not only tell them when things are going to happen, but then remind them as well. A simple google search using the information the LJW provided on Monday would have revealed the same link RadarC posted. From the page that link goes to is a link to a GPS map giving exact time and location of the train. This would have let you know it was running ahead of schedule.
What a bunch of whiners!
Day late and a Dollar short - thanks LJW
I had no idea this was coming thru. Living 1 block away from the tracks, and having the windows open, the whistle scared the heck out of me!! Looked out the window and could sure see the steam. Much different sound than the regular train that we have grown used to, but alas is still annoying.
Awesome. I love trains / steam engines. Sad I missed it. I saw 844 go by once in my 20's.
Just a FYI: Per schedule at http://www.up.com/aboutup/special_trains/steam/details.shtml it looks like it will be in KCMO until Monday morning's departure about 7 am. The address is 30 W Pershing Rd, which is Union Station. Then it makes it way south through Paola and Moran KS on its way to Texas.
WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO PUT THE ENTIRE K.U. FOOTBALL COACHING STAFF ON THIS TRAIN? I WILL PERSONALLY PAY FOR THEIR WAY OUT OF THE STATE OF KANSAS IF THEY WILL AGREE TO GO.
The 844 is lightning fast. UP train dispatchers hate the damn thing for that very reason.
It was great fun listening to the engineer "play" the steam whistle as he drove through Lawrence. Talk about a "lonesome sound"!
So did we. American trains are notorious for arriving late, so we really didn't expect this to come so early.
Don't feel too bad .. the Journal - World said it would come by at 11:30 am .. We got there at 11:10 and it had already gone by.
Didn't see anything on it earlier in the week; disappointed that it wasn't mentioned before the fact. Still recovering from having endured KPR's fundraising while trying to listen to CarTalk. Occurs to me that things like this could be mentioned by other media outlets than the paper as well.
Midland Railway is getting that dinner train from Nebraska. I would be good to read updates on that also.Any upcoming stories on that and their Halloween Train that they are advertising?
Now you tell me!!
I read in the JW it was coming the other day, but plum foregot about it by now.
Too bad there wasn't another more timely reminder in this mornings paper.
I did get to hear the steam whistle though, from the other side of the river!
