Railroad Safety

Hootin’ Andy, a very wise owl, warns Children that a train is approaching. He begins with an original train safety song. At the end of the song, Children hear a loud train whistle. The two railroad crossing gates begin to flash their lights and ring their bells. The arms lower along with a large projection screen, blocking visitors from crossing the railroad tracks on the floor. The sound of the train and the whistles build. Suddenly, the train appears, zooming through the crossing, carrying its long payload. Then, as suddenly as it appeared, the train is gone. Andy then leads visitors in a sing-a-long. Children may take the train safety quiz to see how much they learned.
