the trolley we rode was air-conditioned (yay!) and originally built in the 1920s in australia. random, huh? once it was retired in sydney in the mid-1980s, it made it's way to dallas.
our trolley "operator" (he corrected me when i called him driver) was random, too. he's been an operator for 50-ish years, he said. while he was personable, michael and i decided it takes a special person to become a trollery operator. i'm sure driving the same 40-minute route all day long gets old.
the woodwork in the trolley was beautiful!
luke loves trains, and loves to say "choo-choo!" by the end of our trip, i think i'd convinced him that "ding-ding!" is just as cool. what a fun family outing!
