A Day Out With Thomas Details
A Day Out With Thomas is a weekend event held at various railways around the country. Our nearest is at Llangollen Railway. It happens at least every October. You can normally pre-book tickets for the event or alternatively buy them at the station.
As our girls are under 3 they get to go for free so we had to pay £18 each for me and the hubby. This gives you access to all the activities during the day. You can ride on the trains as may times as you want for that price.
If you’re attending A Day Out With Thomas at Llangollen Railway I would advise that you arrive early as it is difficult to find car parking in Llangollen. If the town car parks are full up then there is a larger car park on the A542 leaving Llangollen. However it’s a bit of a walk along a busy road so not the best if you have small children.
Thomas at Llangollen Railway Station
It was our annual trip to see Thomas at Llangollen Railway on Saturday – we went last year as well. The girls love Thomas so it was only right we took them to see him. Seeing Thomas at Llangollen Railway was something I enjoyed as a child and it’s something I wanted the girls to enjoy too.
As always, Thomas was waiting for us at the station. We took a ride with him, Clarabel, Rickety and Toad. We sat in Rickety and had a great time travelling up and down the length of Llangollen Station.
The activities such as face painting, playing, drawing and watching Thomas episodes were also at the station but we didn’t get to visit them this year. Or I should say, MissMostyn and I didn’t as she fell asleep on me as we were heading there. Little Miss did have Thomas painted on her cheek and she was pleased as punch!
We also met The Fat Controller again this year! The girls were given a certificate each for attending A Day Out With Thomas at Llangollen Railway. I will frame them and put them up in their bedrooms.
A Trip To Carrog Station
As always the trains will take you on a trip to Carrog Station. Last year we traveled on Donald the steamie but this year we headed to Carrog on Daisy the diesel engine.
On the way there you travel through Glyndyfrdwy where you have to wait to pass the other engine. Have a look at my YouTube video for the engine passing…
At Carrog Station
At Carrog Station there was a puppet show which was rather enjoyable. There was also a magician who did some tricks. We bought the girls a Take N Play toy each to add to our collection.
On the way back I caught some lovely photos of the girls. It was a very chilled journey I must admit.
