Baby girl got to go on her first train ride during Easter weekend.
It's an old train station that has been turned into a museum, with occasional special rides. I could have sworn that this is where Thomas the Train was born, but I was sadly wrong.
It used to be quite the hub back in the day, due to all the factories that were located nearby.
But sadly, those were days of the past.
We rode on original 1920s coaches, for a "scenic" ride. All the conductors were dressed in the appropriate 1920s garb.
Doesn't it remind you of "The Polar Express"?
Isabel was fascinated with the people watching
And looking out the window
And hamming it up with the other kids
Even though she had to stand on her tippy toes to see over the seat...
However, when the "highlight" of the trip came...
See her try to get away from the giant Easter Bunny
And Daddy pushing her back to her seat
She's much happier hanging out with Momma
And cardboard bunnies are less scary
Hubby had fun doing the "man" thing of looking at engines and stuff
Isabel just tagged along for the walk
What it is with guys and engines?
And I still think that it would have been the ideal birthplace for Thomas. The town even has a 5&10 store! Totally reminds me of Breakfast at Tiffany's
