Daddy B is from Winnsboro, SC, home to the longest running clock in America (which actually came from Charleston) and home to the S.C. Railroad Museum. The museum's regular season is over, but they were offering steam train rides that made a special trip up & down it's 7-mile round-trip track a few weekends ago. We ordered our tickets and Grandmomma, Granddaddy, Warren, E & I travelled up to Winnsboro for the event.
No wonder steam trains don't run so much anymore, we nearly gagged on all the smoke & fumes. Nevertheless, Eason was thrilled to see a real train up close & running. The engine was the same type as Percy, from Thomas and friends.
Eason loved the "red ca-boose"!
After the train ride, we drove by and saw the old neighborhood and the house where Granddaddy grew up. Then we took our picnic lunch to Park Woods. It was so neat, because this is the same park where Warren's parents and grandparents had many picnics when Warren was growing up.
Thanks Grandmomma & Granddaddy for a special day!
