Peep Peep! Everyone’s favourite storybook engine, Thomas the Tank Engine™ is chugging his way into the GTA at York-Durham Heritage Railway.
Enjoy a day of family fun while Thomas visits the Uxbridge Train Station located at 19 Railway Street. Don’t miss one of the hottest things to do this summer! Thomas is only here for two weekends, August 9, 10, 11 and 16, 17, 18, 2019.
Thomas fans and their families will have a unique opportunity to climb aboard a heritage train pulled by a life-size working replica of Thomas the Tank Engine for a 25-minute train ride. Each child will receive a junior engineer certificate after the train ride as a souvenir. Be sure to get your photo with Thomas while he’s waiting at the station.
Off the platform, meet and snap your photo with Sir Topham Hatt™, the Controller of the Railway. Visit the Imagination Station for face painting, colouring activities, mega blocks and temporary tattoos of your child’s favourite engine.
