Brayden Silvia took his first big train ride Friday with a big smile and talk of Thomas the Train.
The 3-year-old was accompanied by his grandfather, Brian Silvia, as about 100 students – and twice as many parents and grandparents – trekked to the Western Railway Museum with the Solano Community College Early Learning Center.
The trip followed a talk between staff and youth about trains. “In preschool, they are intrigued by vehicles, trains and construction equipment,” said Christie Speck, who heads up the college’s Early Learning Center.
