Everything you really need to know about light rail, you can learn at this friendly toy store. Left of the dollhouses, about knee-level for most grown-ups, Terra Toys provides two mini-railroads -- one Brio, one Thomas the Tank Engine -- with plenty of cars always available for engineers of all ages to fashion their very own trains and send 'em chugging around the circular track. It's a simple route with a flexible schedule, it's accessible to anyone, and it's free. Got that, Capital Metro?
