forever young

The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.
--Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-born American Physicist

These narrow tracks are for a unique miniature locomotive which gives kids a looped tour of Steele Creek Park in Bristol. The train was a fixture from 1964 until 2001 when the train and the tracks fell into disrepair -- both were restored in 2008, and kids can once again ride the Steele Creek Express. Video here.

  1. I saw this picture and said "Steele Creek!" even before I read the caption. I have so many fun memories of riding on that train as a kid :)
