You do not must be a child to agree that trains are cool, and driving on one is even cooler.
The one practice I’ve ever ridden is the Metra (I feel it is Metra) practice from Harvard to Chicago, however I’ve at all times thought it might be cool to take an extended journey by way of practice. I is probably not checking that practice journey off my bucket checklist anytime quickly, however this cool occasion taking place on the Illinois Railway Museum over Labor Day weekend would possibly simply be the subsequent smartest thing.
