    sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 Thats cute

    I can see that he is already loving trains.

    You just need to teach him that derailments are a bad thing and that the trains need to stay on the track. Well maybe when he gets older. :)

    Need to teach that to the real UPsign1
    Always good to get them interested when their young:thumb: We used to go to our fav railfanning spot with ours, but now they're teenagers, and too "grown up" for that.:rolleyes:

    Hey,

    If it's Challengers & Big Boys, his daddy (my son) is gonna have to get 'em for him...! That's HIS train, by the way. I gave it to him 3 months ago...Can't start them too early, I say...sign1

    Aren't grandkids great? If I'd known that they were that much fun, I would have skipped having kids and gone straight to grandkids! :thumb:

    Kids are fun anyways but grandkids are special!
