Field Trip Notes: Santa Clara Railroad Depot

For our homeschool today, we went on a field trip to the historic Santa Clara Railroad Depot. The program was arranged by a local homeschooling field trip email group, and we signed up several months ago. Our boys are train enthusiasts so this field trip piqued their interest. We toured the train museum and saw some fabulous model train layouts.

As usual, leaving a fun place was hard for them and was accompanied by tears, but they did enjoy the displays of signals, model trains and even a really long freight train that punctuated the end of our visit.

For our field trips, I ask Matthew to write a small report and here is what he wrote. While he got some help with spelling, the content was entirely his!
