OLDE KENNYWOOD RAILROAD

We got tired of  exploring the Kiddieland at Kennywood so we tried  the  Olde Kennywood Railroad attraction.  It  is a relaxing trip along the top of the bluff overlooking the Monongahela River.  Not only that  I enjoyed the relaxing train ride but most  especially, I enjoyed the view.  Amusement parks certainly  brings the youth feeling in YOU!
 As the train moves along, there is a history   being played and pictures are displayed for the  riders to see the different  scenes depicting Western Pennsylvania history. 
According to their information, the engines, although different in style and color, were first used in the 1939 World's Fair.  I think it's spectacular that the amusement  park has been around for 114 YEARS already.
We definitely want to go back to Kennywood  in the coming years.
