Woot! It looks like the Great Plains Transportation Museum will be holding another Kansas Railfest this September.
According to its website, Railfest will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019.
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.
They will have music, giveaways, balloon animals, food and more. They’ll also offer short train rides through the museum grounds for a separate fee. Ride tickets are $5 for ages 3 and up. Kids 2 and under are free if they don’t need a seat to themselves.
A big attraction will be the Whitcomb locomotive built in 1934. Volunteers worked hard to get it up and running.
