Monticello Railroad Days

Monticello Railroad Days was the highlight of this weekend and definitely something that will now be an annual family event. There were unlimited rides on three different trains (two separate routes and one short jaunt down to the shop area), motor cars, a hand car, train displays, model railways, and more. It was super!

This is the steam engine that they're renovating. It should be up and running within the year. Thrills! We'll be back often.

We got to operate a real hand car. We got it going pretty fast!

The nice woman who took this photo tastefully cut out my ugly hospital shoe. This fractured foot will be a thing of the past in no time -- and with no photos to remember it by!

Here we are at one of the motor cars. We had a long trip on this one.

Looks like a lot of fun. Now I'm sorry that I didn't take you up on the invite as we were useless in helping with the painting. It didn't look very crowded, either (unless you just framed the photos with no one else in the background!). Hopefully next year!
