Illinois Railway Museum

July 17th, 2007

On Sunday in Illinois, Mike’s parents drove us to the Illinois Railway Museum. The museum features over 4,000 pieces of railroad equipment. There were many trains on display and a few of trains had internal access. The girls really enjoyed sitting inside the regular and dining cars. In one train, we could climb into the front of the engine where the engineer would have sat. We rode on a 5-mile mainline car from an old North Shore Line. With windows open, we enjoyed the breeze.


We enjoyed the museum but not the 90 degree heat and humidity of Union, Illinois. Due the the heat, Jackie ran out of stream before we finished the whole grounds of the museum. We avoided heat exhaustion due to the wonderful museum provided water misters!
