Illinois Railway Museum at Union

The Illinois Railway Museum was a perfect day out for this train loving family. You can't go wrong with a full day of trains, trains, and more trains!

Not to mention "singles" (signals), Kel's favourite thing in all the world. He got a behind the scenes tour of the whole signal collection and was taught how to work each and every one of them. Here he is standing with the control, giving me a quick pose. He spent nearly 2 hours learning all that there was to know about signals! Thanks to the man who is in charge of the signals and recognized a familiar gleam in the eyes our own little signal fanatic. They were like two peas in a pod.

I like this shot.

I don't like this shot. Needed flash, but the boys had already moved on before I got that sorted!

Kel also loves trolleys. We had to get lots of photos by this old specimen.

Look at the size of those wheels!

Just a series of random shots from one of the longer train rides that we took that day.
