The only thing more adorable than baby farm animals is baby farm animals taking an epic adventure to the big city.

A cute herd of tiny farm animals will be hanging out at Union Station this Wednesday and Saturday, where you can pet and Instagram them to your heart's content. The event is aimed at encouraging people to take Metrolink trains to the L.A. County Fair, which, as it turns out, is pretty easy to do.

The baby animals making an adorable appearance this week will include a piglet, goat, lamb, chick and bunny. And while they won't be on a Metrolink train this year—as they were last year—you will be able to visit them in the beautiful atrium of Union Station's East Portal closest to Vignes Street.

The animals will be at Union Station on Wednesday, Sept. 9, from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and Saturday, Sept. 12 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Metrolink will make special weekend stops this month on the San Bernardino Line at the Fairplex Station to take more fairgoers to and from the festivities. Eighteen trains will run on Saturdays and 14 trains on Sundays, with an additional late night train to take the hardcore L.A. County Fair fans back at the end of a long day. The last Saturday train will depart Fairplex Station at 11:15 p.m. and the Sunday train will depart at 10 p.m., both headed to Union Station.

The Los Angeles County Fair takes place Wednesdays through Sundays from Sept. 4 to Sept. 27, 2015. For more info and hours, visit their website.

And for good measure, here are Cinnamon and Spice, three-week-old brother and sister goats that will be waiting for you at the fair:
