National Train Day

Saturday was National Train Day. Festivities took place in a few cities around the US, but Chicago was one of the main locations. I stumbled upon this kernel of knowledge by accident, but with a train lovin son, what a great way to burn a few hours!

We didn't tell Little Man about the event, rather just explained we were going to a new train station. That was all he needed to hear. He insisted on wearing his Thomas the Train shirt and Metra hat. Sidenote, ask him who he is and the response is, without exception, a "train engineer."

The event was fun and crowded! We didn't stay long, but the impact was dellible! Gilbert loved it all. We even snuck onto a freight engine (the line for the official tour trains was too long!).
