Field Trip Foto Friday: Largest Steam Train

So, it's a little late and not Friday anymore... but here was the post I had planned for yesterday. We were busy doing corkscrews around metal roller coaster tracks, getting sun-burns, and shopping for great curriculum and books in Arlington yesterday and the day before. Hope you are having a good weekend.

And now for Field Trip Foto Friday:


While we were in Houston one weekend, there was a traveling steam train that claimed to be the world's largest that came to town. The kids enjoyed going up the stairs and talking with the engineer about the gears in the engine. They played in the steam next to the huge wheels. I copied a photo of our family standing by one of the wheels of the train to show you just how large they were. It was a HUGE train. They had a gift shop attached that you could buy prints and souvenirs from also. Trains have always infatuated Kaden. If you have a train to visit near you, you should go!

I recently started a new project, I'm calling it the "Train and railroad museum" It's a web site dedicated to trains, personalities, and railroad history. you can reach it here:

It's just starting out, so the content is a bit sparse, but more will be added over time.
