A Day with Thomas The Train at NSW Railway Museum

Ever noticed the toddler’s favorite shows and characters fleet from one to another like every two months?  My son is like this.  For the month of September it was Thomas the Train.

It’s a bit hard to keep track.  One day he likes PJ Masks then the next day its Thomas the train.  Good thing about social media is that there are a lot of ads featuring performances and appearances of these children’s shows.  One of which is the NSW Railway Museum – A Day with Thomas.

Yes…having the bub’s photo is always a challenge

Located in Thirlmere.  When I first checked the location, it was just around 40 minutes away from where we live.  So I said, ok, we can have a drive over the weekend and see Thomas the Tank Engine.  When we started the Google maps, o-ho!  It’s over an hour drive.

Anyway, since we have already informed the bub about meeting Thomas.  We set off for a bit of drive.  When we got to the location, you’d immediately see Thomas in the middle of the open area inside the museum.  The tickets are a bit expensive considering that the usually museum price is just around $15.  The event’s ticket cost $30 per adult and $20 per child.  Kids below 2 years old can go in for free.  The ticket will give all access to the museum, jumping castles, free face painting, ride the mini steam train and an encounter with Thomas the tank Engine.  There is also another ticket where you can ride a steam train/ diesel train for 45 minutes.  For that day, the steam engine was not available.  So Toby the diesel engine toured the ticket holders.

If you love trains, this is a perfect place for you.  There were all kinds of trucks and engines kept in the museum.  I am particularly in awe of the Governor’s .  Reading just what everything inside is made of, it is truly fit for a Royal.  It was timelessly beautiful.

Another Day with Thomas is scheduled for this year this coming November.  So if you are keen on riding a steam engine better grab your tickets now as it sells fast.
