Do you Remember Kawartha Lakes Passenger Trains?City of Kawartha Lakes villages and towns used to have daily train service. While searching for Christmas Carols for our Christmas Carol playlist, we found a rare treasure - footage of a winter train trip from Lindsay to Gelert. This reminded us of a young friend who LOVES trains. This one wee fellow makes EVERYTHING into a train! This post has free printables, vintage 1959 winter train trip footage,as well as a few gift ideas for train lovers on your list.

Do you have train lovers on your gift list this year? My great-grandmother was the station mistress at the Omemee train station for many years, and my father had a soft spot for trains, having grown up listening to his grandmother's stories, and travelling by train to various places. I still remember the wonder of travelling by train with my mother and sister as a young child, and listening to the low whistle of the trains in the night.
