Train Depot Fun

After Earlyworks we headed over to the train depot.  We took a tour of the building itself.  The building was captured by Union forces during the Civil War and the top floor was made into a prison.  There is still graffiti that the confederate soldiers left while in the prison on the top floor.

After the tour we took a trolley ride, looked inside a locomotive, passenger car, boxcar and a caboose.  We also played at the Little Toot's Depot and explored a garage with old cars and a fire engine.  We loved our time at the depot and we will definitely be going back on a cooler day so the littles have lots of time to play outside.

exploring the locomotive...lots of things to push and pull...makes real train sounds too
