The State Fair arriving on track eleven.

The 904 "Little Train"

This "Little Train" was a popular ride for many years at the Minnesota State Fair.This photo circa 1949 from the book: "Historic Photos of Minnesota". I do not think I ever rode on it, but I remember the little train was a hit with all the little kids. I was relegated to the listening to the hawkers of fear and loathing at the now-defunct Midway Freak Show. The rubber man, headless woman and the lizard boy were fascinating to an adolescent fighting acne.
