Technically, it’s the California State Railroad Museum, but for some reason Porter insists on caling a “Center.” He’d been watching this train video — what a surprise — that we’d picked up at the local library and it featured a trip to the museum … er, center, in Sacramento. Ever since he’s been asking to go again to visit the trains. Apparently he’d gone once before with his grandparents. When we arrived, he literally was jumping up and down and teling me how happy he was to be there.

In the driver’s seat of the big Southern Pacific steam engine.
Telling me to look down the side of the engine.
Then watched himself as he pretended we were speeding down the track.
Pulling the lever so we could go faster.

Outside by the river, something caught the kids’ attention. What could it be?
A Union Pacific train goes over a bridge.
