Saturday we went back over to Monticello for their monthly running of their “Southern 401” steam engine. David enjoys trains period, but particularly likes the sights and sounds of the big steam engines. Between runs I got to take David up to the engine cabin so he could see everything, including the fire.
On our ride from the station to downtown Monticello we rode in “the green car” at David’s request, and on the way back we rode on the wooden open-air car so we could really see and hear everything. If you decide to try it out, the timing of everything works out well for a ride into town, lunch at the Brown Bag Deli, and a ride back.
There are plenty more photos available, have a look.
And finally, here’s a video of our ride.
