Inscription:

Dear Susanna,
I bought you this postcard last month in Washington, DC. I hope you like the train. I saw this train in the museum. Have a good time with Grandma and Grandpa. I love you.
Daddy.

Postcard back:

Pacific-type passenger locomotive No. 1401. This steam engine was built for The Southern Railway in 1926. Its wheel pattern is 4 6 2, its length is 92 feet and its weight is 280 tons. The locomotive was retired from service in 1951 and now stands in The Railroad Hall.

Leonard's comments:

No gender stereotyping here. All the kids get train postcards.
