For Mother's Day, my husband, my son and I visited the railroad museum in Carson City. My son is a train nut so, needless to say, he had a hard time eating his lunch before we visited the trains! For those of you possibly visiting Carson City (Nevada), I recommend the museum. Although it is small, it has some great examples of old western steam engines. It also has a small "train" that kids can climb into called the "Puffing Billy". Also, every weekend in the summer, they have steam engines running that you can ride. There is a great outdoor park area, and sometimes the Jaycees do a fundraising BBQ as well. Here are some pics of the "G" man enjoying the trains and some other neat train pictures.
