I arrived at the Bicentennial Train at 5:15 Thurs. and found very few people. That won't happen Fri. & Sat. There are probably 150 photos in the 3 cars. They are colored for one of four themes, and it makes some of them hard to read. I read everything and it took about 30 minutes to get through the cars. It might be too busy to do that this weekend.

Good stuff, Craig. We had over 1,000 people earlier in the day, largely school groups and field trips. I haven't even had a chance to check out the exhibits myself!
