I’d never experienced Kansas City by rail before.
This was just a brief visit, a mere layover while Amtrak no4Southwest Chiefchanged crews and dropped off and collected passengers.
I made photos of the car I’d been traveling in: former Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Budd Vista-Dome Silver Splendor (nee: Silver Buckle).
I like the contrast between the 1956-build streamlined dome and the nearly new Siemens Charger diesel-electric.
The modern streetcar was a surprise. I’d forgotten that Kansas City had recently re-adopted this classic form of transport.
Soon we were rolling east toward Chicago!
