A life-size Thomas the Tank Engine (complete with his signature whistle and smile) returns to the Grapevine Vintage Railroad on October 7–9 and 14–16. If your little ones love Thomas the Tank Engine, 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 as most ride times sell out.

Take selfies with Thomas & Friends inflatables, enjoy live entertainment and activities like the Play Pod, animal shows, magic shows, lawn games, a huge model train layout and more. And visit the Thomas souvenir shop with merchandise exclusive to Day Out with Thomas events. Meet Sir Topham Hatt, the controller of the railway.

Train ride runs about 25 minutes. Reserve your timed tickets. Site hours are 9:30am–4:30pm Fridays, 9:30am–5:30pm Saturdays, and 9:30am–4:30pm Sundays.

This event is family-friendly and best suited to children ages 2–6. Set in historic downtown Grapevine, Day Out with Thomas is a favorite among parents, grandparents, and their little engineers! This event is based on the storybook character Thomas the Tank Engine, and hosted by the Museum of the American Railroad and the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. Proceeds benefit museum operations, educational programs, and historic rail preservation.
