Thomas' Appearances

 After his annual big adventure sold out in record time, the Nene Valley railway have decided to block-release the dates for the rest of Thomas' appearances for 2017.

Numbers for these events are not limited and tickets can be bought on the day; but those wishing to attend can also secure their place by purchasing advance tickets.

Bookings will open up to eight weeks before each event takes place. 

Thomas and Travelling Post Office: April 29th, 30th & May 1. Thomas pulls the Travelling post office through the tunnel to Yarwell and back, to demonstrate how mail-bags are unloaded and loaded without the train stopping! Its great fun and shhh dont tell the children, educational too! 

Thomas branch line weekend events: 10th & 11th June and 8th & 9th July. Thomas performs in the station and takes children for a ride up and down his own branch-line for the weekend. 

Thomas summer holiday: 12th &13th August. Summer fun, including that all important ride behind Thomas.

Half term specials: 21st & 22nd October. A less frantic weekend, just Thomas and the big train 

All main fares are fully inclusive and include the ride behind Thomas, ride on the main service and free use of any additional activities such as bouncy castle, face painting and platform games.
