I know, I’ve been busy with a lot of things but I try to keep the Edward Ringwald Blog as fresh as possible with new content. But we got a friendly tank engine that you may know which is just around the corner.
If you guessed Day Out With Thomas, you are right! Day Out With Thomas 2015 is just around the corner at both the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in Miami as well as the Florida Railroad Museum in Parrish!

OK. Now where is the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in Miami as well as the Florida Railroad Museum in Parrish? Glad you asked!
The Gold Coast Railroad Museum is located in Miami on the grounds of Zoo Miami, 12450 SW 152nd Street in Miami. The entrance to both the zoo and the museum is located about a mile west of the Florida Turnpike at Exit 16, which is the exit for FL 992, SW 152nd Street. From southwest Florida follow Interstate 75 across Alligator Alley to Exit 5, which is the exit for southbound Florida Turnpike. Continue south on the turnpike to Exit 16, SW 152nd Street.
The Florida Railroad Museum is located in Parrish, east of US 301 at 12210 83rd Street East. The museum is 35 miles south of Tampa, 15 miles south of St. Petersburg (via Interstate 275 and the Sunshine Skyway) and 25 miles north of Sarasota and can be reached from Interstate 75 at Exit 229, Moccasin Wallow Road. East on Moccasin Wallow Road for five miles to US 301, then south on US 301 to 83rd Street East and the museum entrance.
For those of you coming from St. Petersburg via Interstate 275 and the Sunshine Skyway, follow Interstate 275 to its southern terminus at Interstate 75. When you get to Interstate 75 you will want to follow the signage for northbound Interstate 75 to Tampa but you will exit at the very next exit at Exit 229, Moccasin Wallow Road to Parrish.
