Show-Me Katy: Memories of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad
Climb aboard the Katy with television journalist Michael Landis for an illustrated tour of one of the most scenic rail routes in the Midwest! This 176-page book focuses on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (Katy) Railroad’s routes across southeastern Kansas and central Missouri. Enjoy nearly 300 action-packed photographs of freight trains winding through prairies and small towns, over lush hills, below towering bluffs, and across big rivers. Insightful "Backtrack" articles provide a look at historic points of railroad interest along the way. Interviews with former MKT employees, detailed maps, and informative graphics help tell the story of this often-forgotten corner of the Katy system.
