Day Out With ThomasClimb aboard the Grapevine Vintage Railroad for a Day Out With Thomas on April 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22. This family-friendly event offers aspiring engineers and their families the unique opportunity to take a ride with the classic storybook engine, Thomas the Tank Engine™ at regional heritage railroads across the country.

The event features an approximately 25-minute train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, Thomas & Friends themed entertainment, storytelling and video viewing, temporary tattoos of Island of Sodor friends, and an Imagination Station with arts & crafts and more. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor.

Since Thomas the Tank Engine left the depot more than 65 years ago, this really useful engine and his Island of Sodor friends have chugged their way into the hearts of preschoolers and grownups worldwide. Based on The Railway Series of classic stories authored by a father who loved trains and wanted a shared experience with his son, Thomas & Friends™ is a rite of passage that inspires the imagination while teaching the life lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation.

Tickets are $18 per person and can be purchased from Ticket Web or by calling 866-468-7630. Advanced purchase is highly recommended due to the popularity of this event. Trains depart every 45 minutes beginning at 9 am and complete details can be found here.
