Lawrence’s Santa Fe depot to celebrate National Train Day on Saturday

May 3, 2011


The railway depot at Seventh and New Jersey streets will host a National Train Day celebration on Saturday.

The event begins at 1 p.m. at the Santa Fe Station, 413 E. Seventh, and features a door prize of two round-trip Amtrak tickets to Chicago or St. Louis.

The celebration will feature a performance at 1:30 p.m. by the Dave Gnojek jazz combo and a swing dance demonstration at 2:30 p.m. by Kaitlin Dozier and Stuart Becker.

We need a truly high speed train network like Francehas. Nothing less will work to reduce air and highway long distance travel. Such a train could go from Topeka to KC to St. Louis to Chicago to Detroit...

"Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison. And I went to pick her up in the rain. But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck She got runned over by a damned old train." Steve Goodman (so don't blame me for the spelling/grammar)

Sounds like a good enough reason to party but I usally don't need much of one.

Which streets are impassable? And who are you calling "whiney"?? Go look in the mirror.

And the correct grammer would be "whiny special interest group who "supports" this station", not "support". Get your singular/plural verbage correct, we have enough "whiney" illiterates who contribute to this forum..

How much is this costing the tax payers while the streets are still impassable?? Just more money wasted by the whiny special interest group who support this station.
