We are kicking off the summer season with everyone’s favorite little blue locomotive, Thomas the Tank Engine.TM That’s right, he is back with his pal Percy for another Day Out With ThomasTM at the Strasburg Rail Road, and the pair can’t wait to travel down America’s oldest short-line with your family.

During your day out, don’t forget to take advantage of all the fun extras during this family favorite event, including the fun-filled activities at the Imagination Station. Under the Imagination Station tents, you will find engaging activities for the whole family to enjoy, including:

Story Telling

Sit back, relax, and enjoy tales of Thomas’ exciting adventures read aloud for children of all ages. These stories are based on the children’s show, and the animated reading inspires all the little conductors at the station to use their imaginations.

Play Tables

Stop at our play tables in the Imagination Station, where you can interact with our Thomas-themed track layout, ride the mini Power Wheels, and explore the Island of Sodor through kinesthetic play.

Temporary Tattoos 

Get creative during your time with us by enjoying complimentary temporary tattoos. Your little ones will love choosing from a variety of Thomas characters before or after your ride down the tracks.

Photo Opportunities
