Proposed casino puts gambling on trains

(KMOV) -- There are 15 proposals for a new casino in Missouri, but only one involves putting the casino on rails.

Train coaches would be specially outfitted with casino equipment and would be pulled behind Amtrak trains between St. Louis and Kansas City, according to Ginger Harris, the person leading the proposal for the casino.

Harris said the casino would boost tourism, help Amtrak and spread the revenue made from the casino around the state.

Amtrak has no official position on the casino, but do regularly haul private coaches for a fee.
