All Aboard!

Kids and trains have their day in Philadelphia, as Amtrak brings National Train Day to 30th Street Station Saturday.

All aboard! Saturday May 12 is Amtrak's National Train Day and if you, like me, have a child who thinks riding a train is more fun than just about anything else, you should make your way to 30th Street station to celebrate all things locomotive.

Lines can be long to tour the trains, so you may want to get there early. The event starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. and includes  live entertainment, interactive exhibits, model trains, tours of Amtrak, freight and commuter trains, and private railroad cars and other activities.

Celebrity chef Michele Richard will be there offering samples of chocolate mousse.

Chocolate and trains - the dream combo for me and my son.
