Town Talk: UPDATE: Meeting about Gaslight Village development tonight; More apartments slated for NW Lawrence; Eudora sand pit proposal heating up again; depot to host dedication ceremony Saturday

Actually, the money used by Amtrak to build the platform was NOT ARRA money. Amtrak has been setting a little of the little subsidy money they get to bring station stops up to ADA compliance. What is of interest is that they chose the Lawrence station for this upgrading at this time...Why?

Backyard caboose a 'mini museum'

And you can take the train to get to this train museum. Amtrak's SW Chief will get you there by 7 a.m. You can tour this cool little train museum in Garden City, reboard the train after a late dinner in GC, claim your sleeper and be back in Lawrence by 6 the next morning. FUN!

Amtrak station’s missing sign found, returned

The new sign Amtrak will install on the south side of the depot, facing downtown, will NOT say LAWRENCE. Enough already with identifying the station stop. It will say...AMTRAK. That Amtrak stops in Lawrence will be news to many.

City depot gets extra bit of love during National Train Day

Isabelle,
Thanks for your appreciation. I'm glad you and the kids had fun. Go to www.depotredux.org for a few images of the events.

I wish we had the resources to pay for advertising. Advertising is very expensive and few not for profit groups can afford it. But the Lawrence Journal World did give us a nod with this article last week: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2010/may...

Musicians to liven up overnight layovers at Santa Fe Depot

Dear frisbeenation (Anonymous),

Go to www.depotredux.org for more information about volunteering as a musician for the "On Time Performances" concert series or for work to restore and maintain the depot.

We must limit musicians to acoustic instruments due to the surrounds of the depot. It is located in a sleepy, quiet neighborhood which we want to respect.

I can be reached at careymm@sunflower.com or on my home phone at 785-842-6517.
