2017 April Train Trip and City Museum
Our trip TO St. Louis went well and the City Museum was lots of fun for everyone scouts and parents alike.
The return ride on the train was more problematic. Due to flooding on the tracks we were delayed several hours to start with. Once we did manage to get on the train we were stranded here for 6.5 hours. Amtrak tried to make everything ok with a small bag of cookies. See below for the red light we were stuck at for so long. This was our view for longer than the whole train ride.
