    Kansas City to Chicago direct:
    Southwest Chief departs KC 7:45AM arrives Chicago 3:20 PM

    Also (though this might not have been running a few years ago):
    Missouri River Runner departs KC 7:30 AM arrives Chicago 8:40 PM (longer route via St. Louis, with 2 hr layover in St. Louis)

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.

    •  If so, that's great! (0+ / 0-)

      I thought there was a time some years ago that this trip wasn't available (or required some other stop in between), but maybe I am confusing the destination and it wasn't Chicago.  My memory being what it is...well...anything is possible. ;-)

    •  Checked their map again... (0+ / 0-)

      ...I think the trip I had problems finding must have been KC to Ft. Worth, and not KC to Chicago.  (Yeah, yeah, I know - how could I mix up Ft. Worth and Chicago?)  ;-)
