For sale: One 1953 kiddie train. Lots of mileage. Even more smileage.
Kiddie Acres, a North Austin family-fun landmark since 1979, closed at the end of June. Owners Joe and Marina Herring, with countless birthday parties behind them, are retiring. Kiddie Acres’ 5 acres on Howard Lane have been sold and the rides are being auctioned.
I’ll have more in a minute on how you can own the train or any of the five other rides. FYI, the 10 ponies are spoken for. They’ll be relocating to Goldthwaite, about 88 miles west of Waco.
