Wichita Woo Shock train rumbles into town

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Wu Shock is no longer just the name of the school's shaggy-haired mascot. It's now the name of a train, a very special train that's chugging along.... hopefully all the way to the Final Four.

The undefeated shockers have steamrolled their competition all season long.

And now, they've got the train painted to match it.

Woo Shock (the 'Woo' is indicative of the sound of a train, a spin on 'Wu Shock') runs on the Kansas-Oklahoma railway and will bring its yellow and gold to the train tracks of western Kansas and even into Colorado.

School president, Dr. John Bardo, says the train is just another sign of Wichita State's success. He says the 34-0 shockers are bringing more attention and students to the school than ever before.
