Teaching Through Train Rentals
Kids of varying ages are fascinated with community helpers such as, nurses, police, firefighters, and crossing guards. If you’re a teacher or a homeschooling parent focusing on civil servants in an upcoming lesson, why not look into train rentals to demonstrate how trains and their conductors still play a vital part in many communities? The Mini Express offers trackless, electrically operated trains available to rent beginning at $275 for a one-hour package with each additional hour costing $100. The rental fee includes the professionally dressed conductor who will accompany each brightly painted train. We service Train Rentals in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County, California, bringing the train to you. In some zip codes within our delivery area, a gas surcharge may apply so be sure to check our “book a train” link to check availability and the exact price for your event location. The Mini Express is designed to hold 18 kids or 12 adults at one time, so students of any age and teachers or chaperones can all enjoy the ride. During the ride you can talk about the varying kinds of trains, passenger trains, freight trains and the important roles they play in the community, such as basic transportation to the delivery of necessary goods and how each train is operated by a committed conductor. You could even go into the history of the railroad, explaining its role in expanding the country into the west as well as its contribution to the Industrial Age. The subject matter is up to you, but riding a train while explaining the Trans Continental Railroad, will stay with the kids a long time, making wonderful memories and lasting lessons.
