The heyday of passenger train travel in this country is long gone. These days, we opt for quicker journeys in planes and automobiles. But is there something to be said for slowing down a little? The operators of the Kansas Belle Dinner Train in Baldwin City seem to think so. Every weekend, they offer a return to an era of elegance, sophistication and mystery. KPR News Intern Jeff Carmody files this report.

The Kansas Belle Dinner Train departs Baldwin City's depot every Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. You can find the train schedule at
