Weston Park Miniature Railway

Yesterday we visited the Weston Park Miniature Railway. As Riker adores all things trains at the moment, we had to go check it out even though we'd heard it wasn't the best attraction around.

Waiting for the train to depart.

Enjoying a beautiful autumn day with my favorite co-passenger!

Meandering through the trees - we even spotted kangaroos in the distance.

I just love fun outings with this awesome little guy!

Back at the station. "It's blue like Thomas but with no face."

Inside the cafe I had to laugh at this sign warning patrons about Rail Enthusiasts Disease which is "highly infectious to males of all ages." It certainly does seem that way at times!

Ari and Riker have a popsicle at the cafe and Riker plays with his most favorite toy, a motorized TrackMaster Diesel 10.

Riker was content to go around only once but we all enjoyed our outing to the Weston Park Miniature Railway.  The trains at the Kingston Miniature Railway are nicer and it's fun to look at the big engines as you ride the rails there.  But we appreciated the cafe on site at Weston Park along with comfortable and shady places to sit while waiting for the train to return. And the terrific playground just across the road (and the Yarralumla Nursery Cafe for lunch) makes for a lovely way to spend a morning.
