Photo of the Week!

Missouri River Runner

This edition of Photo of the Week is brought to you by Robert who snapped the popular Missouri River Runner at the Kirkwood, Mo., station this week.

This train runs daily between Kansas City and St. Louis, removing about 600 cars from I-70 with every trip!

Did we mention there’s plenty to see in the towns along its route? In fact, St. Louis has the Gateway Arch, Jefferson City has the capitol and governor’s mansion and Kansas City has the National World War I Museum and Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

Don’t just take our word for it, though. Check out what the folks in Missouri are saying about this train!
