Hesston Steam Museum Christmas 2014

Last year we went to the Hesston Steam Museum at Christmas. It was a very cold and miserable day, so the trip wasn't one we were wanting to repeat in the winter again. Sunday was shaping up to be a nice day, so we thought we'd give it another shot. We rounded up my niece and nephew and headed out to check out the old steam trains.

They didn't have as many trains and old cars out like they do in the summertime, but we came across a few for some fun photo opps. 




For the price of 1 donated toy, you could get a ticket to ride the train for free. They also have a meet and greet with the big man, Santa Claus, in one of the old cabooses, but we skipped it this year since it was so nice out the line was pretty long.

Overall, a much better day to make a visit than last year's!

Have you ever been on an old steam train?

  3. My dad loves old cars and railroads so we so plenty of both. I still love the trains and the sound of trains in the night. This does look like fun and meeting Santa to boot.

  4. I have been on a train in Titusville, Pa where it takes you around for a fun trip. Not sure if it was steam or not. Probably since it was really old.
