Train trip

Took my 3 on 2 trains trips yesterday They had never been on a train before and they thought it was amazing.

I took them on the train as we had been to the railway museum and thought it would be nice for them to experience a journey on one.

They couldn't believe how much more speedier it was than the bus.

I think our journeys now will be more focused on the train than the bus.

My youngest little one (4) cannot stop talking about the train now, I think we have a little train fanatic now lol

Has your little one(s) been on a train and what did they think to their first journey?

Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you're going when your lights are dim.

Wow that's going back a few years for me but I took both my kids on train trips, they loved it esp when another train passed and the whooosh happened LOL
I took them as singularly, when they were about 4yrs old, was good fun had lunch out and a look around and came back home again.

Sorry Madmum, but having no kids this is not one I can give my two cents about.
From what I have seen on my many train trips though is probably that shorter trips are better for young children.
I have seen young moms really dragging butt and irritable children after being on a long distance train trip!

hugs, train
