Meet the world’s favourite little blue tank engine at the Watercress Line this Easter, when the hugely popular Day Out with Thomas event returns to the heritage railway from 13th - 22nd April 2019, featuring an array of exciting activities for all the family.


New this year, Thomas’ station sweeping duo Rusty and Dusty will help to bring the world of Thomas and his friends to life with storytelling and mischievous magic performances.


Visitors will also have the chance to meet Thomas and his friends, shake hands with The Fat Controller, and enjoy unlimited trips behind the famous engine as well as the Watercress Line’s home fleet and miniature railway.


Plus, relive yesteryear and enjoy vintage fairground rides, such as Dobbies and chair-o-planes, at Ropley Station.


Woodies Mountford, Marketing Manager at the Watercress Line, said: “We’re delighted that Thomas will be returning to the Watercress Line this year. Day Out with Thomas is always such a big event for us, and creates a real buzz and sense of excitement among families in the area.”


A second Day Out with Thomas event will take place at the Watercress Line from 3rd - 11th August 2019.
