Union Station KC

Union Station in central Kansas City is an old train station from years ago.  It was built in 1914 and had 900 rooms.  It was a active train station until it was closed in the 1980’s.  It has been remodeled as a tourist attraction and is currently quite a draw to the KC area.


One of the big attractions at Christmas time is the model railroad display.  There seem to be trains going all over the place.  Many kids are running around the large display keeping up with a favorite train as it makes it way along the giant track.


There are other attractions as well, including a kiddy train and a Science exhibit.  They cost money to enter.  Out back you can still view the tracks as they go by the station.


We spent most of the afternoon in the building looking thru all the displays.

Below is a U Tube of the trains as they went around their tracks.  Beware big download about 90 meg.  If on an aircard you should probably pass it up.

This post was done with the old computer, as I know how all this stuff works on XP, LOL.
I did spend a bunch of time today configuring the new laptop, and the day was over just like that!
