Hesston Steam Museum

On Labor Day the girls and I visited a local Steam Museum, we had a lot of fun!

There are 3 sizes of trains you can ride, all steam powered. This is the 1/16th scale train!

Here we go! One of 2 of the train engineers on the 1/8th scale train

These trains are very loud, but the girls loved it!

Each ride was at least 15-20 long, through the forest and across bridges

On the way back to the train station Kylie spotted this swan

Our view from the full scale train ride

Saw a steam powered power plant

Kylie blew the whistle at the power plant, sent black smoke everywhere
Lacey got to blow the whiste too! Matter of fact she made sure she got to do it, as we were walking away she was trying to get of the wagon while I was walking. When I stopped she said me too and made her way straight back where we came from...too cute!

We got to look inside a cuboose, Lacey's trying to get me to come up there with her.

Kylie loved being able to look and play in the cuboose.

We saw a huge saw mill, both girls thought this was pretty neat!
