Long Train Running - January 4, 2019

Q: For those getting on board in Lawrence, Kansas, the "Midnight Train" doesn't go to Georgia.  In fact, it goes in the opposite direction.  Just before midnight every day, the Southwest Chief arrives at the Lawrence depot and then heads west, southwest.  This Amtrak train runs daily between Chicago and Los Angeles, passing through eight states along the way.  How many stops does it make in Kansas?  (We want the total NUMBER of stops the Southwest Chief makes in Kansas.)
