This Wheat Festival Special was operated by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company. It traveled throughout Kansas July 19-July 30, 1926, to numerous Kansas communities. Other organizations that cooperated to operate the train included the following: The Kansas State Agricultural College, the Kansas State Board of Agriculture, The Kansas State Grain Inspection Department, the Southwestern Wheat Improvement Association and the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, under authority of the Kansas Public Service Commission. The flyer lists the speakers and their topics. Miss Vada Watson, the Kansas Wheat Girl, was one of the special attractions.
