GOLDEN, Colo (CBS4) – “All Aboard!” is what you’ll hear as Thomas the Tank Engine pulls out of the station at the Colorado Railroad Museum for three consecutive weekends this summer.
“Day Out with Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017” is rolling into Colorado at the end of June. The Colorado Railroad Museum will host Thomas the Tank Engine on June 24-25, July 1-2, July 8-9. Children and their families can take a 25-minute ride on their favorite engine, meet Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway, and enjoy a day of “Thomas & Friends” fun. This year the theme is “Set Friendship in Motion,” so the activities are friendship-based.
“The Day Out with Thomas includes lots of activities, including ride behind Thomas, photo opportunities with Thomas and Sir Topham Hatt. We’ve got an imagination station, storytelling, lots of things for kids to do throughout the day,” said Colorado Railroad Museum Exec. Dir. Donald Tallman.
“Thomas is the rock star for preschoolers, every 2 to 5, 6 year old want to meet him,” said Tallman. “It’s been a Denver tradition for 16 years.”
The Colorado Railroad Museum opens at 8 a.m. Departures begin at 8:30 a.m. and run every 45 minutes until 4.45 p.m.
