All aboard! It’s that time of year again! Thomas the Tank Engine is pulling into the station.

That’s right. Grab those overalls and put on your engineer caps. Day Out With Thomas is BACK!

I'm certain that my son has Thomas telepathy. He can hear the chugging from miles away and knows that the railway is soon to be bustling with trains and coaches from the Island of Sodor. Day Out With Thomas has become a part of our fall repertoire. As my head starts preparing for pumpkins and scarves, my son starts prepping for one of his favorite days of the year.

There’s nothing quite like seeing a life-size replica of your hero. It’s enough to make any child’s eye twinkle and heart start racing. And make every mama reach for her camera phone. No memory left uncaptured my friends!

Every August, my son starts asking, “Is it time for the REAL Thomas yet?”

My son looks forward to this all year round.

To be honest, I do too.

Our first Thomas experience started with an almost two-year-old sitting in my lap and covering his ears when we heard the train whistles. Now, as a Thomas enthusiast, he sits across from me in his own seat as he happily looks out the window and encourages Thomas along.

“Push Thomas, Push!!”

Each year, I watch his curiosity change and confidence grow. Last year, baby sister rode along and joined us on our train-loving journey with Thomas.

Need to get a jump on Christmas shopping? Check out the A M A Z I N G Thomas gift shop. You can find everything from stocking stuffers to track kits. A must have so you can create your own Tidmouth Sheds for Christmas morning.

Day Out with Thomas has become our own little family tradition. We bring train snacks and books and enjoy a picnic at the OK Railway Museum. The ride is 25 minutes long and leaves plenty of time for exploring all that the museum has to offer. Thomas the Steamie drives through a historic part of Oklahoma City and pulls 7 passenger coaches behind him. Choices include coaches with air-conditioning, a diner car with tables and chairs (no food service), a breezy caboose, or an open-air bench car.

There is a car to meet the needs of every family!

Day Out With Thomas will take place rain or shine. Tickets book quickly and all sales are final.
