My son loves trains. We used to walk on the railroad tracks in Wisconsin and hear the train whistles from our house. ‘Twas so saddening to tell him there are no trains in our new city.
It was with excitement that we began to find out there were remnants of the old trains that used to run around the country. Old abandoned engines and tunnels…
We went on the hunt.
Last weekend we explored El Tunel de Guajataca near Quebradillas. It’s super easy to get there, though a local told us there are often thefts in the parking lot so we parked right up in front
It was a success!
Then we ventured over to Aguadilla. There’s a fun area (Parque Cristobal Colon) down by the ocean where I’m guessing, in yesteryear it was a pretty hoppin’ place. Next to the basketball courts is an old mini train parked in a tunnel/shed. Technically
I don’t think I know the public is not supposed to go back here. But trains! Three year old boy – come on!
The beer bottles and other litter suggest that we weren’t the first trespassers. I will duck under fences and into an unauthorized area to soothe my boy’s train loving soul. What mama wouldn’t? Besides I love to snoop around.
Until the next train hunt….
