Big Boy

We had so much fun watching the arrival of the Union Pacific "Big Boy" locomotive to our city last Sunday! It is one of 25 trains like this that were built in the 1940's. There is a small museum here now that Cody enjoys to look at and eventually there will be a big museum.  He waited patiently for an hour for the train to pull up! He asks often if we can go see the trains on "our tracks"!
 It arrived!!
 He got to walk on the tracks and around the trains! Usually there is a fence and we can't get this close but since Big Boy arrived they had it open to walk around for a short time!
 One big train!
 He even made the Dallas Morning Newspaper!
