While in York we visited the National Train museum. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking here….but I just want to say, the kids were in heaven. Mostly Charlie and Peter. Charlie knew what he was looking at and was psyched about seeing all the cool mechanics. And although Peter doesn’t even know what a train is, his little boy instincts kicked in and he was enamored by all the machinery. I guess it’s hard wired into that boy. Isn’t that a cool picture? The had a great play space there where the kids could play with toy trains in the shadows of all those huge train engines. I think the machinery can be just plain beautiful.I just couldn’t help taking way too many pictures of that boy in his coveralls standing small but awestruck surrounded by all those big engines.
In the back they had a big huge warehouse full of all kinds of train antique stuff for sale. I wish we’d have had more time to search through these treasures. The kids love old stuff. But we had the city of York to explore.
