Trains capture the hearts of children and adults alike.
Join Cleveland Metroparks for the annual, free �Train Day� event on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at CanalWay Center in Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation in Cuyahoga Heights, just below the massive, 2,000-foot long bridge that carries more than 40 trains a day across the valley.
Come and see model trains of various scales and meet train clubs and organizers. Take a guided walk and find out what is in the train cars rumbling overhead and follow the hobo signs on the self-guided hobo trail.
Event-goers can say �hello� to �Conrad the Conductor� as he welcomes everyone along the stroll down the Hobo Trail to discover what life was like for America's traveling workers.
Children can also enjoy music by Foster Brown at noon and 2 p.m., train-themed puppet shows at 11 a.m.,1 and 3 p.m., crafts and face painting.
Plus, enjoy a kid's trackless train or pedal car rides ($2/person or 2 for $3), the Nature Shop selling unique train items, and refreshments for sale.
CanalWay Center is located on Whittlesey Way, off the East 49th Street entrance of Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation, between Grant Avenue and Canal Road in Cuyahoga Heights - just off the I-77/Grant Avenue exit.
