Steam Train Ride



Choo choo..... Here comes the train.....

Aside from loving the Thomas the tank engine and his friends,, which my son has a big collection of it.. He loves to ride the real Steam train... That's why we always make it a point to bring him to the steam festival every year...

It's just 45 minutes away from our place ,, The Thirlmire Steam festival...   On the way there,, you  can see people lining up and getting ready to take pictures of the old trains,,, you can see the excitement on their faces,, they are mostly train enthusiast or just ordinary people fascinated with big old trains....

 Braiden always  get excited whenever he sees train tracks.... so when we arrived on the place  seeing the tracks made him jump for joy,, you can smell the steam and and the dust from the coal...  hummm..  the train is alive!!!!

So we took a short trip back and forth and enjoyed the ride... The place is buzzing with people and kids with eyes so happy just to see the train pass by,,,  There was a parade ,, food stalls,, market place and even if the weather is a bit damp... the place was still packed...
It was such a nice day for a train ride....
