Link Love - Train Edition

Here is something you don't see often...two special trains are coming to our area soon. They are both worth a look.


Thomas the Train is coming to Cordele, Georgia later this month. (I took my little ones to this last year and it was a blast! My son now thinks that the Island of Sodor is in Georgia.)

If you have kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, or anyone that loves Thomas, they will remember this trip for a long time.

Check it out!


The upcoming holiday movie "Disney's A Christmas Carol" is being promoted with a nationwide train tour. Jacksonville is one of 40 cities that the train will stop at for the day. Tuesday, October 20, 9am-7pm, Amtrack Station, 3570 Clifford Lane, Jacksonville, FL.

"Among the highlights of the tour are authentic artifacts on loan from the Charles Dickens Museum of London; artwork, costumes and props from the film; demonstrations of performance capture technology; and a chance to morph your face into one of the film’s characters using HP TouchSmart PCs. At each stop along the way, a state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3D Theatre will be erected, where guests can get a sneak peek of “Disney’s A Christmas Carol” and see other exclusive behind-the-scenes materials from the movie. The latest details about tour stops and scheduled events are available at"
