All Aboard for Women in Railroading

Girl Scouts Got Exclusive Insight to Wacto Transportation

Watco Transportation took more than 130 Girl Scouts, their families, railroad fans, and staff for a short journey to west Wichita on May 16 in a passenger train car.  Attendees did a scavenger hunt, learned about careers in railroading, and enjoyed a “hobo” style box dinner. Operation Lifesaver was also on-board to educate passengers about train safety.

Female staff members of Watco Transportation believe in sharing the many facets of railroading such as how it supports commerce, careers in the industry, as well as supporting our nation’s transportation. All important lessons for the next generation of girls.

Attendees boarded around 5:30 p.m. at Walker and Osage for an hour long ride. They arrived back at Watco Transportation, 1825 W. Harry, for a mini behind-the-scenes tour of the dispatch center.  Participants also received an elite Watco Transportation patch for attending.
