Inscription.

The Railroad is a mighty force
magical and mysterious
Trains represent noise, rhythm and change.
To many trains seem a thing of the past -
the stuff of story books.

With this art piece the
Sedalia Heritage Foundation
sought to provide a rich image of Sedalia's
history as it changed with the
arrival of the railroad and
changed with its passing

Engineered by artist Christine Schilling
in collaboration with school children
of Sedalia Missouri
