Thomas The Tank Engine

Families are invited to come along to The Kent & East Sussex Railway in Tenterden on 16, 17 and 23, 24 February 2013 to meet everyone’s favourite steam engine Thomas the Tank Engine.

Thomas will be making exclusive appearances at Tenterden station with some of his friends including Sir Topham Hatt, The Fat Controller.

Tickets include a 1 hour ten minute train ride to Northiam Station behind one of the Railway’s engines, the chance to enjoy “Thomas & Friends” station scenarios as well as a daily fun packed programme of children’s events with Uncle Myles and Charlie the Clown. There will be a giant television screen playing Thomas DVD’s for children to watch. Families can also enjoy face painting, roundabout rides, and colouring activities.

There will be regular Annie & Clarabel rides at the station behind Thomas, a free sticker for every child and an A5 size Junior Engineer’s Certificate which is available from Mrs Kyndley. Children can also help to fill an engine’s boiler with water.

There will be a fun sing-along session and a special coal cake presentation for Thomas each day.

Watch Punch & Judy shows at 11:30, 12:50 and 2:10, and enjoy Uncle Myles and Billy the Magic Rabbit’s magic show and balloon modelling at 3:30 every day.

Other delights not to be missed include the “Imagination Station” as well as the special “Thomas” souvenir shop, which will be selling gifts to help families remember their special day!

In the Tenterden station refreshment rooms visitors can enjoy a variety of hot and cold meals supplemented by a delicious take away BBQ.

Trains depart promptly so visitors are advised to arrive at least 30 minutes before departure. On each day the Kent & East Sussex Railway opens at 10am to allow visitors to take full advantage of all the activities on offer.

Babies under 18 months are free of charge, providing they do not occupy a seat.
