Amtrak is calling all kids, young and old, to join in the festivities at train stations in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Chicago. From 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., train lovers will enjoy free live entertainment, interactive and educational exhibits, kids' activities and elaborate model train displays, plus tours of Amtrak equipment, freight and commuter trains, and notable private railroad cars. Each event will also feature exclusive exhibits highlighting contributions made to the railway throughout history, such as the B&O Railroad and Civil War exhibit in Washington, D.C.; The Great Migration exhibit in Philadelphia; Hands on the Past: Mexican Contributions To The Railroad exhibit in Chicago; and the California Missions and East Meets West exhibits in Los Angeles. Amtrak will also start its year-long celebration of 40 years as America's RailroadSM with a special anniversary "exhibit train" debuting at the event before traveling across the country.


Also Gladys Knight will be part of Train day this year and on May 5th will kick off a concert in New York and on May 7th will be be In Washington DC.

    Would have been nicer if they had the event when school was out so kids could really enjoy the day, weather permitting of course. Smile

    I went to train day a couple years back. Had a blast.

    Wish I could see Gladys Knight though. Too bad she's not coming to Cali.
