The Lydney-based Dean Forest Railway is running another of its hugely popular ‘Day out with Thomas’ events from Friday, August 21 to Sunday, August 23.

The popular and classic ‘Thomas and Friends’ series of books will be brought to life with ‘Thomas’, ‘Diesel’ and ‘Daisy’ entertaining children at the Dean Forest Railway.  Young ‘Thomas’ fans can see their favourite characters and travel aboard ‘Daisy’, as she races the steam train and takes a story-telling trip into the forest to Parkend.  There will also be short guard’s van rides in ‘Toad’ the brake-van, pulled by ‘Thomas’, for a really atmospheric experience. Sir Topham Hatt will be keeping everyone in order!

Other treats – all included in the ticket price – include rides on a miniature steam railway, Punch and Judy, face-painting, a roundabout and the Imagination Station which has Thomas story-telling, DVD screenings, colouring pages and table-top toys. So there will be plenty for the family to see and do.

Norchard Station has a large free car park. There is also a café, museum and a gift shop selling a large range of Thomas and Friends and other gifts.  The doors open at 9.45 am and the trains run from 10.45 am through to 4 pm.  For more details of this exciting family day out visit or phone 01594 845840.

Don’t miss this one, it is the last ‘Thomas’ event of the year at the Dean Forest Railway and will keep the children talking for some time.
