Three years ago, we took our little train enthusiast to see his favorite steam engine - Thomas the Tank Engine!

We had so much fun getting to see that big blue engine and meeting Sir Topham Hatt. As you can see, the kids were a little nervous to mee Sir Topham Hatt 'in person'.

I'm not sure what I had expected to see when we arrived. I hadn't really thought about what a life-size Thomas would look like. I've seen a lot of trains in my lifetime - old steam engines and new diesels. So, I wasn't expecting to be thrilled by another train. However, a life-size Thomas is pretty amazing. Joey was amazed that Thomas was right there, in front of him! He was even more excited when he was able to ride in the cars that Thomas pulled. "Are they uncoupling? Is this Annie and Clarabel?".

No, those particular passenger cars weren't there - but my son pretended (or possibly thought) that he was riding in them. He had a great time that day! I am so excited to take him to see Thomas again. Joey is growing up much too fast on me and I'm looking forward to the fun he will have seeing his favorite tank engine once again. He is grateful that Diesel 10 will not be there. Apparently, that is the "scariest diesel engine" according to him. Though, for some reason - Joey has asked for a Diesel 10 birthday cake this year.

It’s that time of year again! Thomas The Tank returns to Whitewater Valley Railroad for back-to-back weekends beginning June 14-16. An annual favorite, the day offers plenty of fun from the ride aboard Thomas, arts, crafts, storytelling and much more!
