I am sucker for trains. My Grandpa Etter raised me on HO gauge set that took up more than a living room. I get a little excited when I see the BSNF coal train on Rt 104 headed to the power plant. I know what a 2-6-0 wheel arrangement looks like.
Needless to say, I was a little geeked when my father-in-law mentioned going to Monticello for Railroad Days. I hadn’t been in years and I knew Grayson would have a terrific day. In fact, the whole family had a great time.
Grayson was excited from the beginning. We got several “oh boy!” out of him.
First ride out we sat in the cupola of the caboose.
Grayson yelling down to his mom to “be safe.”
Gray was not the best at posing today. A few too many things to do.
The adventure these two have been on.
Talking with the engineer.
Friendliest hobo you ever meet.
“Full steam ahead!”
We had a great time today! Make sure to check out the Monticello Railway Museum.
