Interesting Places for S

Apparently the headquarters building of the Kansas City Southern Railway, located at 427 W 12th St, Kansas City, Missouri, has an S-scale display layout in their building.

The Kansas City Union Station, located at 30 Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri, has a multi-scale layout which features an S-scale section. Or, at least it did. There was some remodeling taking place in that area, and it is uncertain if the previous S-scale section still exists. However, apparently a new S-scale "Polar Express" layout is in the planning stages.
