We’re excited about the possibilities!

We’ve had a lot of questions about what can be done to save the former bridge tender’s house located on the riverfront. The Chamber has actually been working on this issue for quite some time with Union Pacific and BNSF railroads, who jointly own the property. The plan is to move it to the Atchison Rail Museum and rehab it as soon as both property owners give it to the Chamber for the museum.

Taking the train for the holidays or have you in the past?! Share your holiday train story with us!

The Pullman Company of Chicago ran this paper advertisement that came from a 1949 magazine and features their passenger train. Pullman shows you a woman in her roomette during a 500-mile trip, people boarding the train, a man having dinner, and a family enjoying the passenger car. #railroad #trains

All Aboard The World's Largest Miniature Railroad

Such a cool story!!

The world's longest miniature railroad — 36 miles of tiny track, twisting through 2,300 acres of forest in southern Oregon.

We are so lucky to have the Northeast Kansas Railroaders and their amazing little train right here in Atchison!

The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe steam locomotive No. 811 was built in 1902 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, PA. No. 811 ended its career with the Santa Fe as a switch engine in Chanute, KS, being taken out of service on July 23, 1952. After almost two years in storage, the locomotive was donated to Atchison on June 1, 1954 and placed on display. #restoretherail #ATSF

Look what rolled through town this past weekend!! #restoretherails

Nearing the end of more than a decade of service as a Union Pacific Corporation board member, Gen. Charles C. Krulak, who served as the 31st Commandant of the Marine Corps, attended a farewell luncheon hosted in his honor by UPVETS, a Union Pacific employee group that supports veterans of the armed forces.

Krulak was presented with a red, white and blue HO scale model of a veterans-themed Union Pacific locomotive painted by a local high school student. Pleased with the idea of a locomotive dedicated to honoring veterans, Krulak asked Union Pacific Chairman, President and CEO Lance Fritz to make it a reality.
