Riding the Rail

Children who brought their father's to the Railroad Museum on Sunday were given an opportunity to ride on the "Sky Line Railway" from Hensler, with Ed Duke as the engineer. Children lined up for most of the day to get a chance to ride on the miniature steam engine. (Dustin White photo)
