Sounds good to me. Have you taken them to see the NC Transportation Museum in Spencer NC? If not that would make a great to stop trip.

Plan a trip there for Rail Days, thier annual showcase event. Looks like it is going to be on June 13 / 14 this year. The page on rail days on the website has been partially updated and parts of it are eay out of date (like the part saying advance ticket sales have ended???).

Last year they had an operating steam loco onsite for Rail Days, along with several diesels and lots of activities for all ages.

AND there is a great hobby shop just across the street. The Little Choo-Choo shop is one of the best around for all scales. Between them and the shop in Old Fort, I can find most anything I want or need.
