TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Families chugged along at the Terre Haute Children's Museum this weekend.

The museum hosted its sixth annual Train Day. 

The event featured train displays created by 12 different organizations and people.

Kids also got a chance to see scenes with realistic figures and all sizes of trains.

"As hobby shops disappear, you lose kids," said Newman Atkinson, Train Day Coordinator, "So we want to catch them while they're young and get excited about it!"

The event also included hands-on science experiments.

The goal was to show kids how the special shape of train wheels keeps trains on the tracks.
