I remember when my son, Colin, was a child, he LOVED Thomas The Train.  At one point, I thought that he would become an engineer.  The show re-ignited a love and appreciation for model trains that I had when I was a kid too.  Maybe you have a child of your own who loves trains too.  If so, this is the perfect event for the whole family.

Again this year, the Museum of Science tradition All Aboard! Trains at Science Park is coming on November 23, according to their website.  The exhibit will feature winter landscapes with powered model trains running all through them.  You, or your kids, will also be able to play with smaller wooden train tables where you can lay your own tracts and move the trains around by hand.

Expert train model makers are on hand to adjust the tracks as needed and you can ask questions about the science of model making.  Ever since I've watched the last couple seasons of The Sopranos, I've wanted to get in to it.
