A true country farmer, Nels' most favorite childhood memory was getting to ride a steam engine locomotive to visit an ailing relative.
"Ma and Pa took me on the train and it was the best ride I ever had," he says. "Would be fun to go back again!"
With your help we can make Nels' dream come true and have found a still running steam locomotive a little over an hour away that gives 45 minute rides through the countryside.
Your gift would cover transportation costs, tickets, treats and maybe even a conductor's hat! Thank you in advance for helping us make Nels' Dream of a Train Trip Down Memory Lane come true!
