    Very cool shots Don! Thanks

    I too have only seen those places from trackside. I really liked the shots from behind Union Station.

    Interesting perspective. That sky looks somewhat moody. Which to me, adds to the pictures.

    Question- Who owns the KCT? Is it an independent operation? Subsidiary of several companies? Or?

    :D

    Hello Eugen. Don't worry too much about the BNSF Police, just stay on public property.

    Boxcab: I think it's one of those several company deals.

    Does KCT own any motive power? A switcher or two? Or just track?

    :D

    Just last month I stayed a couple of days at the Westin, across from Union Station. That's a busy rail line; looked like mostly stack trains. Is this a major east/west line?

    LOVE KANSAS CITY!!!!

    Love the pictures!! Been to KC several times via Amtrak and have been to some of those stretches.

    Great thing about KC, you can ride to Union Station stay a few days with plenty to do and it won't cost you an "arm-and-a-leg"
