Day Out with Thomas 

Day Out with Thomas.  

Join Thomas the Tank Engine at the Glenbrook Vintage Railway for a fantastic day of family entertainment.

Sir Topham Hatt the Fat Controller will be in attendance as well as Thomas, Bulgy the Bus, Terrence the Tractor, and Rusty.

Entry into this event and parking is free. The gates open at 9am and shut at 5pm.

The train fare (see costs below) includes a ride on one of the steam trains that travels down the Glenbrook line, with a stopover at the train depot shed where passengers can see many other Thomas engines. The fare also includes a ride behind Thomas the Tank Engine at Glenbrook Station, a discounted ride on Bulgy the Bus, and all of the children's entertainment located at Glenbrook.

Children's entertainment includes face painting, two large bouncy castles, story telling, Thomas train set, Thomas video area and much much more. So much great entertainment at a very affordable cost for families.

There will be food and drink areas around the Glenbrook Station site including shaved ice, mini donuts and a gold coin sausage sizzle, to name just a few.

Two steam-hauled trains will be operating on the weekend. Hauled by "Diana the Express Engine" and "Tod the Tank Engine". They will depart Glenbrook Station every 30 minutes. The first train is scheduled to depart Glenbrook Station at 9.30am and the last at 4pm.
