East Anglian Railway Museum

Day Out With Thomas and Santa

This event has now passed. Thank you and a very happy Christmas to everyone who visited us during December and indeed throughout the year.

Thomas will next be running at the museum at the Easter Bank Holiday so please check back soon for more information.

Thomas the Tank Engine and his Friends will be here in the run-up to Christmas offering unlimited rides on at least three character trains. Thomas of course, Daisy and the Troublesome Trucks with Toad will all be here.

Given the time of year, you will also be able to meet Santa and receive a present (additional cost applies) from the warmth of Henrietta and Toby.

The Fat Controller will be welcoming you and your family plus you can join him for Storytelling time and interactive re-enactments with Thomas and other characters throughout the day.

The Imagination Station offers a wide range of children's activities, from Circus Skills, Punch & Judy, Colouring Competition, engine outline rubbing, playtables with plasticine, temporary Thomas tattoos, reading books and much more.

Our Thomas Shop will be open with a comprehensive range of Thomas goods.

A real family day out, voted a hit by our visitors as a great time for young and old.
