I was pleasantly surprised by the museum. I had only expected for two things outside to look at and I assumed there would be no touching allowed.
It looks like the museum must be part of a train station not in use anymore. All the trains were on tracks and all of them you could climb on and go inside. To top it off it was next to active tracks. A train went by
every fifteen minutes. The trains were close enough if you waved the engineers would wave back and blow the whistle. Also close enough if I needed to pick out an engineer in a line up I could have done it no problem.
|Elated that another train is coming.|
I think if I would have packed us a lunch we would have literally spent all day there. We were there for over three hours and he was still in pure bliss.
|Hmm which train next. It is only my fourth time around.|
|"Mom this is NOT THOMAS. It is the little blue engine!"|
|Climbing the trains like a pro!|
|Waving at the passing trains.|
|"Now this train is too big to put in my mouth!"|
|Two loving siblings in a caboose.|
Hunter also enjoyed just walking up and down the tracks. Lorelei sat in the grass in the shade (mommy mistake I forgot sunscreen) while Hunter would go to the end of the line and back. He absolutely loved this independence. Course he kept turning around to make sure he could still see us.
|I made it in a picture! Hunter too busy checking out train to smile. : )|
|Pout as we left. Look at that lower lip about to drag on the ground.|
