How excited is 8-year-old Jonathan Dockins to drive a train? “100 times more than building a house,” he told FOX40. Which would make sense, since he has never built a house.
Jonathan had a heart defect, and efforts to fix it were complicated because his heart is upside down. There are also other symptoms he deals with on a daily basis because of the defect.
Make-a-Wish brought Jonathan and his family out from Missouri to Sacramento so he could board a train and drive it to Reno, Nevada.
Follow along below as Jonathan is given the royal treatment in Sacramento, boards an Amtrak train, and takes it over Donner Pass.
