Jayden Hachey is a regular here at the Museum. Today he arrived ready to work on the Boom barriers and tunnel construction. Jayden has visited the Museum with Grampa, aka Uncle Charlie, since he was in a stroller and he is a true train aficionado. His imagination is inspired as he boards the Venosta and checks the tracks. Thanks for visiting today Jayden!
