National Train Day

1139SteamEngine

National Train Day (NTD) is a holiday started by Amtrak in 2008 as a method to spread information to the general public about the advantages of railway travel and the history of trains in the United States. It is held each year on the Saturday closest to May 10, the anniversary of the pounding of the Golden spike in Promontory, Utah which marked the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in the U.S.

The City of Dodge City, Ford County, and Travel Professionals, along with the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) would like citizens to join us in celebrating our Western Heritage, see the services offered by Amtrak in the community, and learn more about the restoration of the Historic Depot. We’d like to see folks take some time to explore the attractions and history the city has to offer. We are eager to highlight Dodge City in this nationwide event and hope that this will remind the local citizens of all the things we have to offer and peak the interests of the expanding tourism opportunities in and around our community. In the process, we’ll be showcasing how important travel and tourism is to our local economy and will demonstrate the many great things to see and do in Dodge City.
