Giveaway: Day Out With Thomas (Strasburg Rail Road)


It’s almost back-to-school time, so what better way to celebrate the end of summer than with that little blue engine Thomas? This month, the Strasburg Rail Road in Lancaster, PA, is welcoming back Thomas and Percy at the Day out with Thomas!

Click here and here for our reviews of previous Day out with Thomas events at the Strasburg Rail Road.

From August 27 through September 4, Thomas and Percy will be giving rides through the scenic Lancaster countryside! Thomas rides last 25 minutes, and Percy rides are 12. Additional activities include photo ops with Sir Topham Hatt, art-and-crafts stations, more train tables and Thomas toys that you’ve ever seen assembled in one place, and storytelling sessions, among other things.

Also, the Strasburg Rail Road’s vintage Cranky Cars, pint-sized pufferbelly train, and LO&S motorcar train will all be running.

Frankly, if your kids love trains and/or Thomas, this event is everything they could ever want.
