New at Day out with Thomas

by |

Thomas the Tank Engine makes his way back to the rails of the Tennessee Central Railway Museum, Sept. 1 - 9.

There’s a lot more steam coming down the track with this year’s Day Out With Thomas event at The Tennessee Central Railway Museum.


The “Big Adventures Tour” promises a bigger, better experience for little ones and their families. Taking place Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 1 – 9, the centerpiece of the event remains the same: a 25-minute train ride pulled by Thomas the Tank. In addition, kids can also chummy up to Sir Topham Hatt for photo ops.

The $20 per person ticket (all ages) now includes additional activities like arts and crafts, train table play, a petting zoo, temporary tattoos and more. New activities this year include three giant inflatables, eight-hole mini golf, Thomas storytelling, a video viewing area, rubber tire train ride, and HO- and N-scale operating model railroads.

Train rides depart hourly from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Get your tickets in advance, because this popular tot outing sells out. Be prepared for the exit through the museum; it transforms into a mecca of Thomas merchandise!

The museum is located at 220 Willow St., Nashville. Call 615-244-9001 or visit
