    20 minutes can be forever to an excited boy.

    I worked for a railroad for 9 years. Believe me, it’s an overrated experience.

    My son was just like this a week ago. Excited 7 year old first time on the train. A memory to keep forever in my heart.

    10 minutes can be forever to a kid Michael’s age.

    Even at 40-plus, I find trains (even here in India) quite an experience… Especially 2-3 day journeys.

    The train upon witch I took my first ride was pulled by a Steam Locomotive.
    At the age I was at the time it was exciting, since even in the sixtys Steam Locomotive were rare.

    I suppose that’s true of over familiarity with anything. I know that I am unimpressed with fireworks, having grown up next to Disneyland. They started in 1961 and by about 1965, we never went outside to watch them anymore.

    @JanCin997 I also grew up next to Disneyland and watched the fireworks everynight. Back then Tink slid down the Matterhorn wire. We had year passes and went there often. My first job with a paycheck was Winnie the Pooh.

    Depending on the situation, 20 minutes can be forever to an excited adult too!

    The only “trains” I’ve ever ridden were at the zoo when I was a little kid (which was kind of exciting, too . . . in its own way).
     
    I’ve never ridden an “adult” train like Amtrak but I certainly hope to someday.

    Have they explained to us WHY they’re going to wherever they’re going? I dont think they did…

    I would think to see grandma and grandpa. Isn’t that where they live?
