Day Out With Thomas is returning for a day of colourful adventures at the NSW Rail Museum in Thirlmere. Just an hour south of Sydney, the quaint NSW town is hosting a bunch of nostalgic activities for big kids and small kids alike. The popular event will return this winter and if you have a Thomas fan in your house, it’s well worth the drive out of town. Get a chance to meet Thomas and his friends, take a short ride with Toby the Railmotor, meet Sir Topham Hatt and shake hands with the Fat Controller as he oversees all the fun events of the day.

Other equally exciting activities include a 30-minute steam train ride with Donald from Sodor (Thirlmere) station plus unlimited mini-train rides for little Thomas fans. Also on the menu — three jumping castles, professional face-painting, a scavenger hunt through the Great Train Hall and more. Visitors can also climb into Thomas’ driver’s cab and toot his whistle. The event comes to town on May 19-21 and May 27-28.
NSW Rail Museum also offers a 40-minute steam train ride every weekend along with an amazing array of locomotive displays and exhibits featuring a large span of rail history. It’s a must-visit for train buffs.
