As a bonus, the book is available with 2 different covers to pay tribute to the state’s rich railroad heritage.

  1. We are railfans living in Spokane, MO and use Amtrak from Kansas City, St. Louis, Little Rock, etc. to take us to places where we can see more trains. We ride the Branson Scenic Railway dinner train twice a year, the first one and then the last one, to fill in our love of trains. I purchased this book at the book-
    store in the train station. We are wondering if the station pictured on page 220 dated 1981 is this current station but raised or a different station. We are both enjoying your book very much.

    Thank you, Jill
