GRAPEVINE, TEXAS (March 18, 2013) - Train fans of all ages will want to hop aboard the Grapevine Vintage Railroad for Day Out With Thomas April 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21. If your little ones love Thomas the Tank EngineTM, bring the entire family to enjoy this special opportunity to take a ride with the classic storybook engine at regional heritage railroads across the country. Advance ticket purchase is recommended.

The event features an approximately 25-minute train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, Thomas & FriendsTM themed entertainment, storytelling, live music, building with Mega Bloks®, temporary tattoos of Island of Sodor friends and an Imagination Station with arts & crafts and more. Little engineers will also have the opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor.

Since Thomas the Tank Engine left the depot more than 65 years ago, this really useful engine and his Island of Sodor friends have chugged their way into the hearts of preschoolers and grownups worldwide. Based on The Railway Series of classic stories, Thomas & Friends is a rite of passage that inspires the imagination while teaching the life lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation.
