Austin Children's Museum Lobby Train Set

We have yet to see a young child come to the Children's Museum and fail to make a beeline for the little train set in the lobby. We cannot count how many times we've heard, or said, "Don't you want to see anything else?" But really, we don't mind, because we want our children to Play Well With Others, and anyone who wants to learn problem-solving or negotiation skills should observe a bunch of three- and four-year-olds haggling over who gets to play with the black engine.
