Training in Fort Worth

One thing I quickly noticed about Fort Worth was the volume of railway traffic--passenger and freight--constantly proceeding through the city. From my hotel window I could see a train pass about every 10 minutes. We don't have anything like that volume of train traffic in Northern Virginia. Definitely a city for the railfan! A railway enthusiast myself, I was able to take photos from my 9th floor hotel room and I found a few minutes to go trackside after the conference was over.
I conlcuded my stay in Fort Worth by catching the 1:43 p.m. TRE train back to CentrePoint/DFW. From there, I made another smooth connection to the shuttle buses and was at DFW Airport Terminal A at 2:50 p.
While I was able to see the Sid Richardson Museum, I was not able to see Fort Worth's famous Kimball Art Museum or the Amon Carter Musuem. (They are located in the Cultural District, some distance west of downtown.) Nor was I able to see the Historic Stockyards, perhaps Fort Worth's most well known tourist attraction. But, I was really in town to attend meetings, learn, and gather information to take back, which I felt I accomplished. Though, by walking and therefore staying within a realtively limited area, I had been able to see some of the more off-the-beaten path sights.
