California State Railroad Museum

Today we headed north to California State's Capital city of Sacramento. More specifically, "Old Town Sacramento," where the side walks are wooden, the streets are brick, and the original buildings date back to the 1850s and the notorious mining days of the California Gold Rush.  The streets are riddled with historical museums, old fashioned candy shops, unique shops, fun entertainment and so much more.  Today we visited the train museum.  Gabe has become quite the train enthusiest and found himself on cloud 9 as we ventured through the exhibits, especially when we happend upon the Thomas play area!
We got to tour the inside of an old U.S. Post Office train and look at the mail bin we found!
Some of these trains were unbelievable HUGE!
