For the Love of Trains............

I was invited to join Sheila and boys on a trip to the Whittle Shortline Railroad Shop (Valley Park, Mo.) for a few hours of playing engineer on the local line:) What a wonderful place! Upon entering you see large room full of train tables small and large! Children are invited to their hearts content. This is free (but a donation could be made) and you can stay as long as you want! They have private Birthday Parties there also. We spent several hours there talking and playing with the kids. They had so much fun and the number of train cars to play with is monumental. They produce wooden trains and tracks if you are so pressure though.

Check out this train table........Can you say Huge!

We were actually alone with the trains for just a few minutes....then all the kids and parents started coming in. With this many trains there is no problem. A Birthday gathering was forming and soon we were alone again as the children went upstairs to have their party:)
What a fun place to while away a few hours with your children.....
