Running the Trains
Robbie watching the outdoor trains.
The Cedar Grove Train Station...to ride the rails you can watch the You Tube videos in this post from last September.
Mark spent a good part of his vacation helping my dad paint and get ready for the garden railroad tours that Dad's layout is a part of.
My dad has called Alex his "train guy" for years. It's one of those hobbies that crosses the generations and the two of them share a deep love of trains. Unfortunately, most of the "train" weather happened while Alex was over at Nana and Papa's so Alex missed most of the train time.
Thursday evening, even tho' the weather was less than ideal, Grandpa and Alex went out to run the trains. Alex is one of the few (if not the only) grandchild allowed to run the controls. I love that they have this bond!
