Riding the Rails
urbanMama Heather is looking for more rails to ride for her three year old kiddo:
My three year old LOVES trains, streetcars and the like. I am always looking for different train-type themed activities for us to do? Anyone have any suggestions for train rides they loved, train themed parks, trains museums, etc. that might be more unknown or usual? We have made our fair share of Amtrak, Max and Portland Streetcar rides.
There are several other events that come to mind. First, after visiting the zoo this weekend, we should not forget the zoo train. Occasionally the Oregon Heritage Rail Foundation has special events with our very cool steam and diesel engines. Their ultimate goal in their events is to have a rail museum here in Portland sooner than later. If you don't mind heading north across the Columbia River, then you could try the SP&S Railway Museum. If you think he'd like to observe some miniature trains in action there are sometimes shows at the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club. If you drive east you could catch a ride on the Mt Hood Rail Road. Any moms have additional train-related event/activity suggestions for a three year old?
