Very interesting! I'll be taking the Missouri River Runner this summer on my trip across the country (and back) on Amtrak. I'll keep an eye out!

Some kids dream of being doctors, champion athletes or reality stars. Eric always dreamed of being a train engineer, and as proof that some dreams really do come true, he's now a conductor on our Missouri River Runner route.
The Missouri River Runner travels daily between St. Louis and Kansas City. Next time you ride, keep an eye out for Eric!
In the meantime, check out this interview with him from KCUR, Kansas City's public radio station. He chats about record ridership, the special training that our engineers get and even the craziest thing he's seen on the train.
Trust us, it's worth a listen!
