Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum
The boys and I have spent the week in Tennessee visiting family. Today we went to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. I loved all the details on the old engines, from the peeling paint of the retired ones to the shiny wheels and lights of the restored ones. The boys were pretty cranky, but that didn't slow down my picture-taking fun. Scooby loves trains, so he was pretty quick to correct our terminology and point out which ones were like the various characters from Thomas and Friends. We rode on a train, saw the engine take a trip on the turn table and toured the train shop where they were restoring old engines.
