A taste of Germany: 
Remembering our German heritage on the Smoky Valley Limited!

Many of the first settlers to arrive in Dickinson County and central Kansas in the mid- 1850s were German. In fact, traces of our German heritage are everywhere, reflected in architecture, community celebrations, and, of course, in the food we enjoy today. On Saturday, May 18, the Abilene and Smoky Valley Railroad presents a taste of German culture, as the Smoky Valley Limited hosts Chef Manfred of Schatzi’s Schnitzel Haus in Riley. Enjoy your choice of schnitzel (breaded pork chop) or German beef goulash, with German sauerkraut with bacon, semmelknodel (bread dumplings) with mushroom sauce, and for dessert, homemade apfelstrudel (apple strudel). Iced tea and water accompany the meal. And for an extra charge, Schatzi’s has German beer! The train leaves our 1887 Rock Island Depot at 6:00 p.m. Enjoy a taste of Germany as the Abilene & Smoky Valley Limited glides through the river valley for a two-hour dining adventure on the rails of Kansas history!
