TKC MUST SEE!!! SHAME!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EVENT FOR ONE MILLION RIDERS HOSTS VERY FEW PARTYGOERS!!!



This week there was a party for the toy train streetcar but attendance didn't match massive ridership claims.

Accordingly . . .

THE CELEBRATION OF ONE MILLION RIDERS FOR THE STREETCAR WAS AN EMBARRASSING DISAPPOINTMENT HOSTING A PALTRY CROWD COMPRISED MOSTLY OF PEOPLE ON THE PAYROLL!!

An image taken at the party features the streetcar band playing to a crowd of almost nobody.

Sadly, this kind of fact check is important if locals are being asked to fund an extension based on little more than faulty sensors and failed promotional events like this one.

You decide . . .

Doesn't look like a lot of fun.

The money is running out and that's why they need the extension. The supporters are getting desperate and without additional funds there just doesn't seem to be cash to keep the thing running without dipping into the general fund.

TKC, this is the reason that they have to rig another election.

Not a big crowd but a good crowd.

The scheduled it too early in the afternoon. Most people were still at work except for the city hall employees.

You'd think some of those alleged 24 million tourists would show up for the event!

How much public money was spent on this little shindig?

You should have seen it after it got dark. It was actually a lot of fun and pretty well attended.

This is the equivalent of showing up first to a sold out concert and declaring it a failure because no one was there.

So, what we have here, ladies and gents, is a photograph backed up with fewer facts with a buttload of angry personal bias.

Just so everyone is clear on that. It's not representative of reality.

These people's ability to endlessly celebrate themselves is surpassed only by the Chamber of Commerce swells skill at giving each other awards.
But they're catching up fast!
And all on the taxpayer dime.
A cloud of smoke unsupported by anything but hype and thin air.
Can Sly keep the illusion going until he leaves for Washington?
Stay tuned.

@3:12pm
The "event" was scheduled to go on until 8:00pm.
And for 3:49pm
You should have seen what happened after you left may be great for a fishing story, but not for something with as little public credibility as the streetcar gang.
Again the regular question in KC:
How much was spent, paid to whom, and where did it come from?

According to City Hall, there are 10-thousand people in your picture.

Saw clip on tv and the place was deserted. Free food & drink didn’t even get people there!

Heck, there was nobody left to come. With 6,000 riders per hour everybody in KC is riding the trolley.

One million riders = “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

Instead of celebrating how many tourists the thing carries, let’s hold off on celebrations until we start seeing the streetcar bring new jobs and merchants to the area.

Total bust and just another Sly lie.

How many parking tickets will KCPD have to issue to pay for this party?

Trumps not going to be appointing Lyin' Sly to anything in Washington.

The streetcar is a success. I think we can all agree on that. It has created jobs and is helping to build excitement around KC. So what if the party they threw wasn't a hit. What's more important is that every weekend I see people happy to be aboard this vehicle and we are making Kansas City a better place. Let's build on that momentum. Let's keep the good work going!

It's not kool-aid. It's a deep love for my city and a desire to help and work toward something instead of against it!

Everybody likes a free ride !

How about working for functional infrastructure and making a public transit system that already exists free for those who could really use a free ride rather than a building, maintaining, and (unbelievably) expanding a monument to nostalgia?

Crazy Clown said...

OMFG - yes that's definetly , Standing Room Only,,,,,

I seen a few Hundred Million people lined up on the interstates all the way to CHINA, waiting to attend this event , didn't you ??????

Even CHINA was having problems with Crowd Control !!!!!

Evidently, its the 1st TOY TRAIN they've ever seen with all those illusionary riders on board,,,,,,,

Soon SLY JAMES and his Snake Oil Salesman hope to extend the TOY TRAIN all the way to - Kat'man'doo too ~ !!!!!!

6:18, my thoughts exactly. A party for the trolley? This shows just how "wannabe" KC really is. Sad. The only thing worse is that God-awful tv commercial with the morose song promoting the trolley.

So did the crooked local libtards pay these bureaucrats to show or did they just promise to work something out for time off from work?

What a pathetic waste of money. Trash overflowing and this is the focus. FAIL.

The point is the people who came to the party had a ball. Sore losers only wish the TOOT TOOT ill will. Vote YES on getting rid of Sly. Vote Yes on more parties. Vote Yes on the Clay BillionDollar Boon Doggel. Every time you ride the Free TooT Toot you put the city deeper in to debt. Ride it night and day until it stops because the city it bankrupt.
