New to the Escalon Historical Museum is this home-crafted miniature wooden train. It was created by former city employee Case Rietveld in 1989. Different train sets were made for each child in the family with their individual names proudly displayed. This train also contains the message: ‘I think I can; I thought I could; We did it.’ The train was donated to the museum by Rietveld’s widow Mable. The Escalon Historical Museum is at 1630 Main St. and is open on Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All are welcome and there is no price for admission. Donations are gratefully accepted.
