Woot! The Great Plains Transportation Museum will be holding their second annual Kansas Railfest on September 22 and 23, 2018.
This day will be filled with fun from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for ages 13 and older, kids 12 and under are FREE.
Because of construction happening on Union Station next door, this year’s Railfest will be held within the Great Plains Transportation Museum area. The focus will be entirely on trains with special attractions and activities. (They won’t have the marketplace like they’ve had in previous years.)
A big attraction will be the Whitcomb locomotive built in 1934. Volunteers have been working on it to get it up and running.
