Midland Railway offering scenic historical train rides Area residents can travel through scenic eastern Kansas countryside during Labor Day weekend. The Midland Railway of Baldwin will offer train rides Sept. 1-3, departing from the Santa Fe Railway Depot at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. each day. The excursions will travel over tracks originally laid in 1867 and paralleling William C. Quantrill’s escape route following his 1863 raid on Lawrence. The ride also will take people through southern Douglas and northern Franklin counties from Baldwin to the turn-of-the-century town of Norwood. In addition, Midland’s restored diesels will be showcased as power on these excursions, and three of the historic engines are celebrating landmark anniversaries. The 1951 ex-Missouri-Kansas-Texas (Katy) and the 1951 New York Central Alco are both celebrating 50 years. Tickets will be available at the depot, 1515 W. High St., before each excursion’s departure. The cost is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 4-12 and free for children under age 4. For more information, call the Midland at (800) 651-0388 or visit www.midland-ry. org. __________ Investigation: Fort Riley soldier found dead Junction City (ap) Police are investigating the death of a Fort Riley soldier who was found lying in a parking lot in Junction City. Police said Eric Lule, 20, and another soldier, who they would not identify, were found lying in the parking lot of an apartment complex early Sunday. Police Lt. Royce Rasmussen said Lule was unresponsive when police arrived. He was taken to Geary Community Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. An autopsy was performed, the results of which were not available Monday. “We can’t rule out foul play, but that hasn’t been determined yet,” Rasmussen said. Rasmussen said no charges have been filed and the investigation will continue. __________ Crime: Suspect in stalking arrested An 84-year-old man was arrested Saturday for allegedly stalking a 78-year-old woman, Lawrence Police said. The woman called police about 1:30 p.m. and said the Lawrence man had been contacting her over a considerable period of time and had been at her residence earlier without her permission. Officers found the suspect in a car at Fourth and Florida streets. He was taken to the Douglas County Jail and later released. Charges are pending. __________ Events: Moore to speak at Washburn The Women Attorneys Assn. of Topeka and the Washburn Law School Criminal Justice Law Society are sponsoring “Pizza and Moore” today at the law school at Washburn University, Topeka.
