Festive Day Out with Thomas
Join Thomas, the number one blue engine, as he visits the East Anglian Railway Museum for a day of family fun. Sir Topham Hatt will also be on hand to make sure that Thomas is being a really useful engine whilst Rusty and Dusty, Sodor’s Station Sweepers, will be causing mischief.
He's behind you!
