Come and step into a world of trains during the popular Friends of Thomas Days!** Join us July 18, 19 and 20 from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm, for fun, games, activities and rides on the mini rail. 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.

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 18th, 19th, and 20th.

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.
