The last thing I took a picture of was this small steam engine in a glass case that you see when you walk into the museum. Elizabeth really enjoyed her experience at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay and I enjoyed my second visit to this fine establishment. Thank you to the National Railroad Museum for having us visit today. It is a class act and I look forward to bringing friends here in the future.
