A journey, yes — going around in circles!
This charming mini-railroad runs (in clement weather) around a portion of Northampton’s Look Park. (I hear you now: is there no end to the wonders of this park? And the answer is No.) The wonderful little railroad departs from the Kiddieville station at frequent intervals, circles the zoo, goes around the woods and through a tiny tunnel whistle hooting, then emerges on a broad meadow, heading for home.
For adults the journey is a little problematic: I am small, and even so, I sit with my knees pressed against my chin. But it isn’t a long trip, and grandchildren are utterly enchanted. The tunnel, the whistle, the merry little train — Bon Voyage!
