YOUNG train lovers will have the chance to meet the world’s favourite little blue tank engine this Easter when Day Out With Thomas returns to the Watercress Line for 10 days from April 13.

New this year, station sweeper Rusty will be joined by his partner in crime Dusty. The dynamic duo will help to bring the world of Thomas and his friends to life with storytelling and mischievous magic performances.

There will also be an array of exciting family friendly activities across all of the railway’s stations, including vintage fairground rides, and unlimited trips behind the famous engine as well as the Watercress Line’s home fleet and miniature railway.

A second Day Out With Thomas event will take place at the Watercress Line in August.
