Nebraska tourism guide features Kansas City picture


LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska’s newest state travel guide mistakenly includes a picture of a Christmas celebration at Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Omaha World-Herald reports a production error allowed the picture of the Kansas City station to be utilized rather than Union Station in Omaha.

A spokeswoman for the Nebraska Tourism Commission Erin Lenz says both historic train stations look similar, and workers who proofed the guide didn’t catch the error before 200,000 copies were printed.

The publication cost $94,000 to print and another $84,000 to distribute.

The Durham Museum occupies Omaha’s Union Station. Museum spokeswoman Jessica Brummer says she sometimes figures everyone makes mistakes, and the error earned the Durham some free publicity in Kansas City probably.
