Essex Valley Railroad: Steam Engine #97 In The Station Area With Santa Special Train


It’s December 28th, and the Essex, Connecticut Valley Railroad’s last day of operations in 2008. Watch as #97, a 2-8-0 Consolidation Steam Locomotive runs around her second to last Santa Special of the Winter and operating season of 2008. You will see views of the beautiful locomotive, and, as usual, we will take you into 97’s cab and sit in the engineer’s seat and stand on the cab deck. So watch and enjoy as Consolidation #97 does what she does best and gets ready to pull her last Santa Special and train of the operating season, on her last day until a 4-5 month long Winter’s nap in the engine house.

Bar Stool Options in the Kitchen Area

Using a barstool set in the kitchen is a great way to save space and incorporate the use of available countertop space and breakfast bar usage.

The Heart of the Home

The kitchen is generally considered the heart of the home. The meals are prepared in the midst of talking and laughing and fun times socialising with family and friends. You can carry on conversations while sipping on a cup of tea or coffee, doing homework with children, and having heart-to-heart conversations. Visiting of all types can be enjoyed over a steaming cup of hot chocolate. All these occasions and more make an inviting and warm family kitchen the heart of the home.

When you use a barstool set to allow more sitting space, create an inviting area for the family to gather, and add extra seating when friends visit, it will enhance the warmth and comfort of your home.

Usage Options

The kitchen offers a few different options for arranging your barstool set. If you have counter space that will allow setting up seating around it, this can be a great space saver. It will also add a place to eat, play games, and visit with family and friends.

Using the barstool area to do homework will help keep the table top clean for meal times. When you use the kitchen for helping with homework, you make it possible to combine the tasks of cooking, baking, doing dishes, and answering questions about the studies of your children. Besides the convenience of being able to get your work done while they get their work done, you will be creating a useful and inviting family area by making a welcome place for them to join you.

Using your barstool set at a high table will create a new look and enhance meal time and game time with room to move around and sit up high. Kids love being seated up high, and the view of everything going on around them will make it more likely that they will stay seated longer.

Barstool Options

If your kitchen area is small, you may want to choose a barstool set that is adjustable or foldable. Adjustable barstools offer the convenience of being modifiable for height. This will make moving them from one area to another easier; they can be raised or lowered to fit different heights.

Folding barstool sets offer the advantage of being stored easily. Easy storage makes putting them away and setting them up quick and simple to do. Using them only when needed for extra seating or for specific tasks such as homework, or a game night with the family, will be made easier by the storage options.

Using a barstool set in the kitchen can be an addition to your home that will enhance your lifestyle and family life. Inviting a closeness that will encourage conversation, being together, and socialising with each other, a barstool set-up can do what other furniture options may not be able to.

Making your kitchen a warm and inviting place that will truly be the heart of your home may be only a small change away. Setting up an area for bar stool usage may be just the change it needs.

Live Steam Train Rides in San Diego Area? Please help me locate for my 5 year old son.?

My 5 year old is nuts about trains, especially steam trains. He will be 6 next week & I am trying to find the location & price of any steam train rides in our area? My husband is handicapped & we live on a very fixed income. The local RR mus in Campo only offers steam rides at special times & for special events and tickets are well beyond our means. I know there must be other public or private groups that offer steam rides to the public during the summer but I can’t locate any in the San Diego area. Can anyone tell me where I can find such places and if possible how much they charge for tickets.
