BARS::Railroad Track Signs in Kansas City, Kansas

These railroad track signs are in Kansas City, Kansas.

The track signs say...

   +------------+ +------------+
   | Track   30 | | Track   29 |
   | Location 3 | | Location 3 |
   +------------+ +------------+
   the numbers are:  30  29  3  3

   the math is: (30 - 29) * 3 = 3

   more math: 3^(30 - 29) = 3

   more math:  30 - 29 = (3 - 3)!

   rsStateEval:  30 + 3! - (29 % 3) = 34
   * Kansas was the 34th state admitted to the Union

   rs42Eval:  30 / 3 + 29 + 3 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  30 + 29 - 3 - 3 = 53
   * MathBabbler was 53 years young when he found these signs.

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  30 + 29 - summation(3, 3!) = 42-1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(3, 3!) = summation(3, 6) = 3+4+5+6 = 18
