Wabash Frisco and Pacific
Should the gods smile and you find yourself in Mayberry on a Sunday, especially with kids in tow, mosey over to the Wabash Frisco and Pacific RR. For over 70 years the RR has spent Sundays offering rides on their fabulous 12 inch railroad through the Meramec River bottom.
Sunday, I am taking Joe the Chick Magnet's 2 big brothers (3 and 4) for the excursion of their lives. They are somewhat apprehensive because I warned them we are riding through the forest and they have to be on the lookout for lions, tigers, bears and BBW (big bad wolf). Who's afraid of BBW? They are.
A short distance from the WFP RR is the Museum of Transportation which has a collection of old cars and trains. Just maybe, if there is time we might get to both. I'll have to ask mom if they are old enough.
