Children’s Medical Center Dallas removes most-loved Trainscape to provide space for a new playground, courtyard, and Starbucks. Now people share their memories and feelings, how the hospital’s cherished Trainscape made a hard time better for them.
Louisa Swafford, a mother of a 2-year-old girl, took to her social media handle and shared a video of her daughter enjoying the train. She shared her video and wrote, “’ The Trainscape’ got my daughter through so much. It was the incentive to get out of bed. It was where we went to reward a rough iv, a scary procedure, or a painful dressing change.”
The hospital will construct an all-abilities playground, courtyard, and Starbucks.
Children’s Health has said that the “spirit of the Trainscape” will be incorporated into the lobby.
The trains ran at Children’s for 30 years.
