As you would expect there are lots of trains and historical displays. What's not expected is how you can go inside nearly every piece of equipment. I was thrilled to climb into the locomotives and sit in the engineers chair and look around. Besides an...More

For the Day out with Thomas Event, is it possible to access the park, the facilities, the mini-train, the Imagination Station, etc. without purchasing a ticket to go on the actual Thomas train itself? My 3-yr-old last year loved everything last year except for the 20-min ride on on the actual Thomas car.
