Atchison Trolley Learn about Atchison from those who know it best. Hop aboard the trolley at the Santa Fe Depot and enjoy a 45-minute tour of Atchison narrated by your friendly, knowledgeable driver. As the trolley moves along the city's brick streets, you'll discover the classic charm of Atchison, including 18 sites on the National Register of Historic Places- its victorian mansions, sites right out of state and national history books and dramatic views of the Missouri River.
