A happy and enthusiastic young

train fan preparing to board our Hutchinson Excursion Train.  

This train was pulled by the K&O Railroad’s locomotive recognizing The Wichita State University Shockers.

Our apologies to those who had planned to ride the train from Wichita to Yoder with us on Saturday, April 25th!!!

There was a last minute mechanical issue with one of the cars.  The Car Repairman was called in and he attempted to fix the problem but after about 2 ½ hrs of work (and 2 hours after our scheduled departure time), the attempt to remedy the problem was still on-going.  The unfortunate decision was made at that time to cancel the trip.  This was the first time that we have ever had to do that and we regret the inconvenience caused to all of those who had hoped to ride the train with us.
