    We went to the Museum to take our son to see Santa, so while we were there I snapped some pics of the trains they have. Enjoy

    Sorry this last one isn't a great inside shot, but I was leaning as far as I could past the rope.:)

    The Lionel Christmas layout at the museum. Lost of track, 4 or 5 trains, and a couple of handcarts and trollies, houses made from candies. Pretty nice, could be ALOT better in my opinion.

    Cool trains! My parents went there earlier this year, and took some pics (no trains) while there. One of the pics was of a Texas Instruments Instructor (I think thats what its called) toy for kids, that I had when I was younger, and actually still have

    Funny how some things look exactly the same over time... except when we were there (August of 2001), the Allegheny had it's headlight on. Pretty huge place wasn't it? Did you manage to do it all in one day?

    Good to see that you're getting the little guy started early. Enjoyed the pictures. I've always wanted to get back that way to see the Ford Museum. Now I really want to go there.

    Is that possible?!? It's only 15 minutes from our house and we have a season pass, so we go to the Museum at least once every 3 months (the travelling attractions change quarterly, usually) and to Greenfield Village every couple of weeks. It's just nice to go walk around, ride the train, and see what they are restoring or preserving.

    My son rode Thomas the Tank Engine there for the first time while he was still in the womb!

    Going to the one in Chicago in the spring sometime.

    Ahhh, lucky you! My wife and I lived in Toledo for a couple of years and visited the museum twice and both times never made it outside to Greenfield Village. I sure miss it up there (Ohio/Michigan).
