Since Thomas the Tank Engine left the depot more than 65 years ago, this Really Useful Engine and his Island of Sodor friends have chugged their way into the hearts of preschoolers and grownups worldwide. Based on The Railway Series of classic stories authored by a father who loved trains and wanted a shared experience with his son, Thomas & Friends is a rite of passage that inspires the imagination while teaching the life lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation.
July 8- 10 and July 15 -17, A life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine will be at the Northwest Railway Museum’s Snoqualmie Depot. 38625 SE King Street, Snoqualmie, WA, in historic downtown Snoqualmie.
