We went to Monticello today to ride the Ghost Train. The ride itself was very short, but good for the train load of toddlers and preschoolers. I thought we'd be going all the way downtown so I was disappointed when we stopped and began to reverse about 500 yards away from the depot.
We stayed to walk around the old trains and talk to the people working on them. We got to see the insides of a 1951 Tennessee Central double engine diesel that can still run 98-117 MPH. It was fascinating. B really enjoyed the historical tableau inside the Pullman Baggage car, but I was too busy chasing H to see the WWI coffin or much of the mail train. B's dad worked on a mail train in Indianapolis after returning from WWII.
If you ride the Ghost Train stick around for the rest of the museum and wear sturdy shoes.
