All Aboard! Last November, DAY OUT WITH THOMAS drew 30,000 visitors to Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, California, and is now returning again this Fall to delight more in “The Friendship Tour 2017”! Train enthusiasts can get an up-close-and-personal look at Thomas the Tank Engine and his best friend Percy for four days in November (4, 5, 10, 12)! A ticket for DAY OUT WITH THOMAS includes a 20-minute train ride with Thomas, photo ops with Sir Topham Hatt, storytelling with video viewing, an Imagination Station with arts & crafts, temporary tattoos of Island of Sodor friends, a petting zoo, bounce houses, live children’s music, sing-alongs, train tables and building activities, and more. Children are invited to collect passport stamps throughout the day to receive a special gift. There will also be street car and trolley rides and an entire museum to explore. It is an all day event!
“A visit to the Orange Empire Railway Museum is a trip back in time to when trains, conductors, whistles, bells and steam were a part of the way we traveled.”
