Kids of all ages, get ready to meet your favorite tank engine! The Virginia & Truckee Railroad has brought Thomas to town for a few very special days.

A Day Out With Thomas™ gives children and their families a chance to take a 25-minute train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine™ and to meet Sir Topham Hatt™. Explore the Imagination Station Caboose, create colorful memories in the Coloring Caboose, dine at the P. B. & J. Pullman car and have fun with plenty of other Thomas-themed activities including motor car rides and putt putt golf at Sudor Island. Children can collect a Thomas tattoo, an engineer license and have their passport stamped. There is time to listen to expert storytelling and watch the latest Thomas videos in the V & T’s 1870 waiting room.
