A few years ago I decided that I would torture my children in my quest to obtain "the perfect photo" . . . this photo happens to be one of my early attempts . . . this is the best one out of perhaps 12 photos before little girl cut and run, tossed the cap and was screaming to get the kerchief off her neck. All the while my son sat there patiently waiting for me to snap off photos. This is still the case, all these years later. This train has provided my children many happy times and loads of laughs. I have actually driven around the tracks a couple of times myself, so I can attest to the giggle fest one would have riding this mini train.
