Train Birthday Party
This is not your usual, dress-up like a train engineer birthday party. Or, where everybody plays with toy trains. For the child that loves trains, their birthday party can be much more than just dressing up in a train costume. Why not treat your birthday child to visiting real trains on their birthday.
In my area, and in a few surrounding towns, cities, there are actual historic trains, preserved trains, or replicas that are for the public to enjoy. They are usually part of a park or museum.
In Richmond, VA, there is an old train station that was made into a Science Museum. Outside behind the museum, are several locomotive engines, box cars, and loading docks that are all preserved to their original form. There are picnic tables outside and other playground games for kids to enjoy, including a chess set where you walk on the board and the pieces are about 3 feet tall.
