2012 – Wichita Kansas – Part 5

Well, it’s the final day of our mini vacation to Wichita but we have time to make one more jaunt.  We will head for Wellington, Kansas this time to track down some more SF / AT&SF / BNSF railroad structures.

We are one again home after getting dumped off on the tarmac at DIA.  Our niece who had just graduated is there to pick us up and take us home via the scenic route,  Now if she can get a job at the Denver Zoo all would be great.
