All Aboard for Adventure: Day Out With Thomas Returns to Snoqualmie!

Get ready for a journey filled with laughter, learning, and locomotives because everyone’s beloved blue engine, Thomas the Tank Engine, is chugging his way back to Snoqualmie in 2024!

The Northwest Railway Museum is hosting this year’s much-anticipated Day Out With Thomas: Bubble Tour. This annual event transforms the museum into a magical world where families can step right into the stories of their favorite tank engine.

Thomas the Tank Engine first steamed into readers’ hearts in 1945, introduced in the British Railway Series books by Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher. Thomas quickly became the series’ star, leading to his television adaptations, including the classic Thomas & Friends and the recent reboot, Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go. More than 70 years later, Thomas inspires children and adults worldwide, teaching valuable friendship, exploration, and cooperation lessons.[1]

This year’s Day Out With Thomas event promises an array of bubble-themed games and activities perfect for Thomas’s youngest fans and the young at heart. The event features live entertainment, photo opportunities, lawn games, and a chance to take a real train ride with Thomas himself. It’s an opportunity for families to create lasting memories while engaging in fun and interactive experiences.
