One of my son’s first words was “coal.” Wouldn’t have been too surprising, if, say, he were the child of West Virginia miners—but here in Arlington, you don’t come across too much coal these days. Except, if you’re a kid who spends his days immersed in the world of steam engines—in particular, a blue tank engine named “Thomas”— and other types of trains. As I’ve learned from talking with other parents and observing the pre-school social scene, my train-obsessed son isn’t alone. This article delivers a listing of family outings that center around the railroad. Click here for the complete All Aboard for Trains! article (PDF Format).
