My grandson, at 2 years old, loves Thomas the Train and watching some of my train videos on my phone, so Papa, with Nana, decided today was the day to take him to see his first real train. The engineer gives a nice wave to him from CP 8706 as they honk the horn and run on by. He hasn't stopped talking about this for days and likes to tell everyone he sees that he saw his first real train. I wonder how long it will be until we see his name on here.
