Why do Children (Especially Boys) Love Trains so Much?
I know I loved trains when I was growing up (and still do) and so does my son and every other little boy he is friends with. What's with the fascination with trains? I always found them cool because of their power, size, schedule, etc. Cars just go places randomly, and did not interest me.
As a little girl I used to have an electric train set that I loved so I guess it is not only boys! Still have an idea to build a huge one one day if I have space but I'm not sure if that will happen!
One of my daughters is fascinated with toy trains. It maybe because she is able to control them, move them around. I personally like the sound of passing trains and am lucky enough to be able to hear them from my bedroom when I go to sleep. That sound makes me happy.
My father retired from the Railroad a few years ago so we grew up around trains. He now works at a Train Depot and loves still being around the trains. My brother got a train set for Christmas one year that came with a Steam engine. This was really cool it blew smoke from the smoke stack. My son loves trains also and now that he is a teen we as a family have started to build a train table. What fun! Go to a train show sometime and I bet you come home wanting to build your own.
