The coming of the railroad was viewed as a necessity by town founders in the late 19th century. With a railroad connection, residents could travel to any comer of the nation and local prod- ucts were available to a world-wide marketplace. One area of rail travel which left a bit to be desired was speed. The first train schedule on the Burlington and Missouri River Rail Road, the first to serve Superior, and the predecessor of today's BNSF, took effect on Sunday, July 24, 1881. Trains arriving and departing Superior opened up connections to the east and west coasts. The trip to reach the connecting points was a leisurely one. A train departing Superior for the trip to Hardy, a distance of eight miles was accom- plished in 50 minutes. The trip from Red Cloud to Superior, a 24.3 mile journey required two hours and 30 minutes. To travel from Superior to Guide Rock, 13.7 miles would con- sume an hour and five minutes of one's time. Should Wymore be your destina- tion, one would need to allot seven hours and twenty minutes for the 83.1 mile ride. The train made stops at seven station between Superior and Wymore as these were not express trains mak- ing limited stops. The trains were a dependable means of transportation for area residents but speed was not the main selling poim. The railroad opened up the world of commerce as it allowed the influx and outflow of products to improve the quality of life for a growing state. The Burlington and Missouri River was the first of four railroads which would serve Superior. The Chicago and Northwestern, the Missouri Pa- cific and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe would serve the city at later dates. The Rock Island Rail Road reached Ruskin and Nelson while Se- dan was served by the St. Joseph and Grand Island, later leased by the Union Pacific Railroad. Spirit world 'debunked' Sad news for the 40 percent of Americans who believe in ghosts: they don't exist, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. According to Professor Brian Edward Fox, he was able to debunk the notion that there' s a spirit world out there using the world' s largest and most powerful particle ac- celerator. The accelerator is located at the headquarters of the highly regarded European Council for Nuclear Re- search founded in 1954 and located near Geneva on the Swiss-French bor- der.
