Worldcons are fun! Getting to and from them should be fun as well.
This is an independent group of fans who have come together to organize and run this. While it is not sponsored by MidAmeriCon II, we do encourage people to check into this transportation option!
Leave August 16, return August 22, 2016
Join your fellow fans on the Southwest Chief between Chicago and MidAmeriCon II in Kansas City, Mo. Discuss Science Fiction, the convention, or anything that comes to mind. Maybe do games and filk if anyone is so inclined. Dinner in the diner or purchase something from the Café car. All with old friends and new.
Leave Chicago Union Station 3:00 p.m. August 16; arrive Kansas City 10:11 p.m.
Leave Kansas City 7:43 a.m. August 22; arrive Chicago Union Station 3:15 p.m.
