CELEBRATE SHARING KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXPERTISE!!!
A bit for Kansas City Sunday discussion:
Accordingly, here's a bit of Kansas City knowledge on display . . .
AMTRACK TRAVEL BLOG: KANSAS CITY ‘EMBRACES TRYING OUT BIG IDEAS’, EXPERT SAYS
Money line which features a local transit activist living the good life:
"Last year Matt Staub was brave enough to race an $80,000 Jaguar against our Southwest Chief. It was the ultimate face-off with Matt enjoying the race from the luxury of one of our comfy long-distance roomettes. To say he keeps Kansas City "Team Train" (he even had the support of elected officials!) would be an understatement.
"So we caught up with Matt to find out what people can really expect from his hometown when they visit Kansas City for National Train Day on May 10. As a partner at Graphicmachine and the co-founder of grassroots transit organization Streetcar Neighbors he stands at the intersection of tech and transportation."

"Who knew Matt Staub was an expert on anything? He's only been a transit activist and streetcar pusher for 2 years. Amtrak has very low standards when it comes to relying in the opinion of experts."
Other than all of the empty promotion . . . I guess the Q&A with Staub was interesting if only because it reveals his horrible Pee-wee Herman haircut answering more questions than most local neighborhoods have about the toy train streetcar.
