Planes, Trains, and Automobilies

Last Saturday, we took Lillian and Lucas to visit the train museum in Guthrie. It was cold and windy outside, so we thought this would be a great inside activity. I was blown away by the detail in the train models!

Lucas liked watching the train go around and around.

There were at least 7 displays, each one different. The curator explained that many of the train cars were worth as much as $500 each. Some even had a Mercedes-Benz engine! We watched in fascination as the tiny treasures sped around the tracks, some going in tunnels and through towns.

This miniature house and SUV was perched on top of a "mountain."

The train designer had some fun portraying a "car wreck" on a bridge.
