Evan loves trains. He knows all of the parts, what makes them work, and he lights up whenever he sees a train. When Evan met with Make-A-Wish® volunteers, he told them his wish was to be a steam engine conductor.
When it came time for his big wish trip, Evan was ecstatic. He and his family traveled to Durango, Colorado to see a historical train. Upon arriving at the depot, Evan was surprised with a big welcome party which included Blue Bunny ice cream. After enjoying some treats, Evan heard the rumble of the evening train approaching and stood in awe. His wish was coming true! Evan was able to be a real steam engine conductor and inspect the train up close.
