We were fortunate to catch the train on a weekend when the actual Steam Locomotive was running so it was very cool.
It is a Baldwin Steam Engine built in 1907 (for the train-enthusiasts out there). With real steam!
The Poway Midland Railroad runs every weekend February-November. Old Poway Park also puts on a Train Days Festival with music, kids' activities, and train robbers. We might have to check that out!
Do you have a favorite park or play place that your family loves?
