Let me tell you looking back it sure is a wild ride!1 Like the GD said in truckin, What a loooooooooong strange trip its been!
Only thing i have to say is its about to get wilder!
Yes we are on time but this is yesterdays train
Wow what an amazing story, that is really wild!
Been that two year old. When I was a wee lad my uncle Darren would take me out to watch the trains passing by my grandparents house in Orion Illinois.I grew up with Cascade green on one side of town, and multicolor Rock Island going through to the coal mine and Lafayette on the other.My grandparents aunts and uncles bought me every kids train book you can imagine,drove my mom kinda nuts lol. There was one called "here comes joe!" if anyone can find that for me I would be greatly obliged.
I had an engineers hat and would tell my mom "Im going to run trains someday"I had HO scale layouts from age 7 on.A subscription to trains at 12.
I am now a locomotive engineer ( only tok me 34 years lol)and I LOVE to see kids just going nuts like I used too. Keep that spark alive in them ( sounds like actually you wont have too lol) cause I have to say my love of trains has been one of the best things in my life.
Wow, so your telling us that you have passed on your addiction too trains to your boys, thats just great...no really, Thats Great, sorry that they give you such a hard time about leaving the trains when it's time to go.
I'd be curious to see what their reaction would be to the real thing???
I would bet it has a lot to do with the movement, colors and size of the trains and layouts, kids love that stuff.
Keep up the good work with those two and you better start saving for their own layouts because by time they hit the age they can run their own everything is going to cost a whole lot more than it does today.
You sound like an excellent Dad and we all know the world can use more like you.
Enjoy those children, time goes by too fast for us to enjoy the small things in life sometimes.
I always get a kick out of your twins stories.
