    Yelp would love to go. I think this is the place Nancy and I had gone to....love taking pics of those old items. They even had a couple of trains we could go up on and take pics from the inside

    Just to let everyone know Jim got us a deal on this. It is normally $6.00 to get in and $6.00 to ride the train and you don't get back stage passes. LOL

    Also wanted to let you all know when we meet in the parking lot at the K&W Cafeteria we will have to carpool up or take your own vehicles. I would like to suggest if you jump in the car with someone else you may want to throw a couple of bucks there way to help out with gas.
