Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Hypes Summer Tourist Ryders Despite Breakdowns
Here's a quick peek at hype from the toy train that touts sketchy data that's not independently verified and hopes to ignore no less than a half dozen FULL STOPS for the line so far along with the mostly empty morning commute.
Still, the tourist success is worth touting if only to keep all the consultants happy with something to promote via social media.
