First, let me thank you for following along and supporting Nathan on his journey to learn more about the trains he loves so much.
CP Rail, along with Metrolinx and VIA, have fulfilled Nathan's wildest dreams and given him experiences he will cherish for a lifetime.
Nathan has accomplished more than we could have imagined with this blog so far and we are so proud of him.
Along with that pride comes responsibility, of course. And Rail Safety Week is a good time for us to remember that.
We need to remind Nathan and his sister that what they love about trains - the giant machines hurtling loudly down the tracks at high speeds - is also what can be so dangerous about them. We need to remind them to stay off the tracks, to stand back at the crossings and never approach a parked train - it could move at any time.
CP Police Officer Ron Morrison was kind enough to visit Nathan's classroom and taught all the kids about train safety. He said it best: Any Time Is Train Time.
Pass it on.
Thanks again for reading and safe train spotting!
From Nathan's mom, Dana
