Freight Train, Freight Train Going So Fast

Last year for Christmas Joseph got a copy of Freight Train by Donald Crews…and he couldn’t have cared less.  He was way more interested in books full of people, especially babies.  But he rediscovered the book a few weeks ago and is reading it to shreds!

A few weeks ago we got the chance to go see the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad.  Jojo was in heaven.  At one point he let out a squeal, and one of the men operating the trains said, “That’s the sound that we live for!”

Here’s a little Elizabeth Mitchell singing “Freight Train.”  She even rides the train to visit her friend named Jojo!


  1. Down By the Station for Joe, Nico and Mabel

    Down by the station
    Early in the morning
    See the little pufferbellies
    All in a row .
    See the station master
    Turn the little handle
    Puff, puff, toot, toot
    Off we go!
