We're just putting out feelers here to see if anyone is interested in riding 
the train from the Kirkwood Station to Jefferson City for the Paparazzi & Pasta 
The train leaves Kirkwood Sat. AM at 8:59 and arrives in Jeff City at 10:51 AM. 
The return train leaves at 7:03 PM and arrives in Kirkwood at 8:58PM. There is 
also a train leaving Jeff at 10:33 AM and arriving in Kirkwood at 10:51 AM if 
anyone wants to stay over night. Sunday also has the 7:03 train too. They have 
a snack counter on all the trains with, sandwiches, soda, coffee, etc.

Remember, these times may change due to a derailment, flood, cows on the 
tracks, and freight trains (freight trains have the right of way).

Round trip fares are $34; $30.60 for AAA members, and $28.90 for Seniors (62 
and over). I'm not sure if this includes tax. Everyone would be responsible for 
their own tickets which can be purchased thru Amtrak at 

How we get from the train station to the event (3 miles) is still in 
discussion. 1 option is to rent a car(s) or a 15 passenger van. This way we can 
cache until the event starts at 5PM. Or we can keep the car/van for those that 
want to stay overnight and can on Sunday until the morning or evening train 
back to Kirkwood. Problem is just an Enterprise and Avis are near the train 
station and Enterprise is closed on Sundays so we pay until Monday AM. Avis 
closes at noon on Sunday so that may be a problem too. 

We could make the trainride an event if there's enough interest.

Let me know if there's any interest in this.
