Chances are, if you know a little boy between the ages of 1 & 5, you know a Thomas & Friends fan. My little guy Gordon, yes, like the fastest of all the engines, Gordon, is obsessed. Here he is in his favorite Thomas t-shirt. So of course I couldn’t pass up the chance to hop aboard the Grapevine Vintage Railroad in Texas for a Day Out With Thomas (and Gordon) this weekend. Runs April 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21
Don’t live near Grapevine, Texas? Thomas is probably also pulling into a heritage railroad near you. Here is the schedule of events. And even if it’s not near you, it sounds like it might be worth a day trip for true Thomas and train enthusiasts.
The event features an approximately 25-minute train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, Thomas & Friends themed entertainment, storytelling, live music, building with Mega Bloks®, temporary tattoos of Island of Sodor friends and an Imagination Station with arts & crafts and more. Little engineers will also have the opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor.
Advance ticket purchase is recommended and you can see the schedule and purchase tickets online here.
