Union Station's Holiday Express
This photograph captures the chill and excitement surrounding the winter holidays at Kansas City's Union Station. Here, Kansas City Southern's Holiday Express Train chugs across a snowy rail beneath a neon "Union Station" sign. The train was built from retired railcars in 2001 and transformed into a brightly lit and bright-faced train personified as "Rudy". Each year, Christmas characters populate the train and invite Kansas Citians to take a ride each holiday season. In this photograph, the night's darkness shrouds most details of the background and emphasizes the Christmas light-covered train.
