Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar Claims Higher Winter Ridership Despite 'Ice Storm' FAIL
The toy train numbers are finally in for January and streetcar ESTIMATES a ridership gain of 8.4% over last year.
However, there's one important number worth reviewing in these bold assertions . . .
Take a look:
A so-called "ice storm" literally put the streetcar off-track and caused an embarrassing midday tow job.
To wit . . .
ONCE AGAIN THE TOY TRAIN FAIL HIGHLIGHTS THE WEAKNESS OF THE FRAGILE STREETCAR THAT DOESN'T WORK UNDER TYPICAL WINTER CONDITIONS!!!
Moreover . . .
REMEMBER THAT BUSES WERE UP AND RUNNING AND TRAFFIC WAS STEADY DURING THIS ALLEGED ICE STORM!!!
Furthermore, locals might have a bit less confidence in these numbers given a discrepancy of more than 50% betwixt December 2017 vs January 2018 despite weather conditions that were typical for Kansas City.
You decide . . .
