The numerous freight yards and rail lines criss crossing Kansas City form the second largest rail hub in the United States. With nonstop action across the metro area, this city is every railfan’s dream! In 1996-97, Pentrex cameras captured all seven major railroads that make their way through Kansas City: Amtrak, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, CP Rail, Kansas City Southern, Gateway Western, Norfolk Southern, and Union Pacific.
You’ll visit many hot spots such as Rock Creek Junction, Murray and Argentine Yards, Union Station, Santa Fe Junction, Hannibal Bridge, Truman Drawbridge, the West Bottoms and much more. There’s even the rare appearance of a jet snowblower in action on KCS! Motive power ranges from aging SD40s and SD45s to the modern SD90MAC, and includes fallen flags Santa Fe, Burlington Northern, Southern Pacific, and Chicago & North Western. This metropolitan rail center has a lot to offer and Pentrex covers it all for you. Enjoy great action and excitement on Kansas City Rails!
