Wichita, Kansas: Air Captial of the World
Railways were also important to Wichita and a small Rail Museum near the old depot has a few engines and cabooses one can climb on, ring bells, view from every angle. This Santa Fe steam engine is huge and one of the last class of passenger train engines. It was built in 1938. The train station itself is a beautiful building but up for sale at the present time.
Although we have visited bigger and more flamboyant museums, these two places on a sunny Easter weekend after a long winter made for a nice outing in Wichita.
