come on the peace train

We watched a few trains today.














This was at the Morton Arboretum. They call it the Enchanted Railroad. I asked one the "engineers" operating it, how long it took to set-up. He gave a detail schedule of so many days for the this and that step. It totaled about 4-5 days. It would be wonderful if we could set-up a peace train over 5 days.

And Peace Train is an all time favorite song of mine.

I love miniature trains. We started collecting pieces for one years ago, but never quite finished it. This looks like a really cool one!

lisleman said...

it's a very nice set that has been featured at the Morton Arboretum the past few holiday seasons. thanks

There is something fascinating about watching mini trains. Happy Sunday! Happy New Years!

Trains are mesmerizing. Look at those transfixed little faces.

I think it easy to imagine riding or standing by a real train as it goes by. thanks Happy New Year

You know for that many children in the room, I don't recall any crying or fussing. They were definitely enjoying the action on the tracks.
thanks

I remembered my own train story, and gave you a thank you link.

lisleman said...

thanks - it's fun when one post generates another.

Ah. Peace Train. In just five days, too. I would definitely climb aboard.

Secret Agent Woman said...

You know that song's not really about a train, right?

Keetha said...

I love trains like that - - - wish I could have seen it.

lisleman said...

Yeah but it's a good metaphorical train about the peace movement and playing it gives you a reason to wear paisley.

In my book, the wish for peace isn't a '70's concept. It's timeless.

lisleman said...

I would agree with that.

lisleman said...

It sure would be great if people could come together. Even agreeing to peacefully work on coming together would be a good start. thanks

lisleman said...

It's a nice set-up. I suspect they would do it again next year. thanks

lisleman said...
