I'm not entirely sure why I love them so much, but I really, really do. I absolutely love trains. I think they are just the bee's knees! In all seriousness, I am fascinated by them, and any chance I get, I try to take a train ride. Like the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, it's a beautiful 90-minute ride along Tillamook Bay and the ocean. Every time we find ourselves going that way, I make sure we get tickets, take the kids, old people, and all the ones that think it's stupid too.
