the place to be

when you’re 7 years old and love everything trains, this is the place to be.

this old rock island caboose was getting ready to be famous. they were getting it ready for a movie crew to come in at the end of the week. the man told us it was the “biggest piece of junk on the lot” and the movie makers wanted them to leave it that way.

the diesel engine was loud, but not loud enough to keep us from visiting the engineer in the cab.



annie and clarabel


the volunteers we met at this museum were super friendly and knew lots and lots about all their trains. the real thomas is coming in september, we may go back.
