We were up at OMSI as a family, and trying to figure out what to do for the rest of the afternoon after we were done playing at OMSI, but before we headed back home. Just a block or so away was this cool Railroad Heritage Center
We (meaning the kids and I) noticed this new building last few times we went to OMSI, but I didn't realize it was like a museum with real trains inside! It caught Dad's attention, and he realized it was open, so we decided to come back after lunch! It's pretty small, but the locomotives are still huge.

Being able to get up really close to these giants was pretty cool. The kids were smaller than some of the wheels alone.
They had a few things parked outside as well.
We even had the chance to go inside the caboose, and get a peek at what a real caboose looks like. It was pretty neat!

If you are close to Portland, OR, and have some train loving people in your family go check it out!
