One of the side trips we did is go to Jamestown and ride the train. Originally it was all steam locomotives and the rail company has been in use since 1897. We got to ride on the 1952 Diesel engine because they only run the steam engine once a week now. For the price of the 40 minute ride you also get to go into the fully operational blacksmith and old machine shop. Let me just say that I was freaking out at all the cool shit in the shops. Originally the entire machine shop was run on belts so if one machine was being used all the machines were cranking. They showed us the first aid kit which included a bucket and multiple tie off ropes. As in fools lost limbs often. No thank you, but honestly if you like or love in my case all things mechanical it should be a must some day. Look up Railtown 1897 or google Jamestown railroad and have a more in depth looksy.
