Friends of Thomas Days

The Railway and Forestry Museum is pleased to announce that we will be hosting Friends of Thomas Days again this year from July 24th to the 26th. During the event, our trains and vehicles will dress up as Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends for three whole days of fun-filled activities. We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Join us for food, fun, and memories for the whole family to enjoy!

This year we will be having a wide variety of activities for children of any age, such as games, crafts, a BBQ, rides on the mini-rail train, draw prizes, a Thomas film fest, cut-out photo stops, and more! Take a Friends of Thomas passport and explore the grounds to get a Friends of Thomas certificate! To make the weekend even better, we offer a pancake breakfast from 10:00 am to 11:30 am on July 24th, 25th, and 26th.

The Railway and Forestry Museum has been celebrating “Friends of Thomas Days” for years and we are very excited to carry on the tradition this year with lots of new and exciting games and crafts.

Regular admission rates apply, and there is no need to purchase tickets in advance.

            We look forward to seeing you there.
