Riding the Rails

While we were in Colorado last week, we took JD on his first train ride. It was a steam engine train on a narrow gauge railroad in Cripple Creek, Colorado. As a side note: My dad was really getting into the Colorado train stuff before he died and purchased a train set for the cabin (which still has yet to be assembled). So it was fun to take JD on a real Colorado train.

Of course, we had to get him outfitted in a railroad hat. He actually kept it on for most of the trip.

He was a bit startled by the loud whistle since we were sitting right by the engine.

He liked to see the coal going into the stove and said hot, hot when he saw the red coals inside.

Overall, I think JD really enjoyed his first train ride!! His grandfather would have been so proud!
