    This is a Hail Mary... back in my youth in the 60's passenger trains were going away... Santa Fe did a trip to Dodge City Kansas... they picked up kids from towns all along the main in KS... I and my friends and brothers got on in Hutchinson KS. We spent most of the afternoon at Old Dodge City... visiting the Saloon and Boothill etc.

    Does anyone have any knowledge or memorabilia from that time..?
    It was advertised through the schools I think...
    Open to grades 5,6,7,8 I think
    Only adults I remember were train staff....Poor devils.....

    Any info would help me
    Thanks in advance... Jim
