Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends aren’t just found in books and on TV – they can also be found in real life on 21 heritage railways throughout Britain.
The Day Out With Thomas events give families a chance to meet and ride on their favourite train characters, say hello to the Fat Controller and do all sorts of other fun train-themed activities too.
The nearest location for Little Tigers readers is East Lancashire Railway in Bury, East Lancashire. The next events are:
30 April – 2 May 2016
6 – 7 August 2016
1 – 2 October 2016
