Rail Ride

McALESTER —

McAlester elementary students were treated to a train ride Thursday by AOK Railway. Students rode on a Lark model passenger car that used to run between LA and San Francisco and an old style caboose. AOK gives students rides so they can learn about train safety and understand why it is important to be careful if they are around railroad tracks. AOK also like that they will be able to tell their kids someday they got to ride on the train when they were young.
