Thomas is a regular visitor to Didcot Railway Centre where he is welcomed by his friends the Great Western engines.
Meet Thomas and his friends Duck & Diesel and The Fat Controller, Sir Topham Hatt, who will be keeping an eye on everything today. Enjoy rides with them all day and as often as you wish. Thomas the Tank Engine is running on his Branch Line and his friends Duck or Diesel are running on the Main Line.
During the day, colourful ‘Professor Crump’ will be clowning around the Centre. ‘Twistina and Twistopher’ will be balloon modelling in the Welford Ticket Office, at the entrance to Thomas’ Branch Line Platform. Pauline will be leading the Circus Workshop in the Picnic area and Thomas story readings will be held hourly from 11am in the Imagination Station.
Don't forget to collect your sticker and souvenir ‘Day Out With Thomas’ Certificate signed by Sir Topham Hatt, the Fat Controller.
A wide range of souvenirs is available in the ‘Thomas’ shop. There is a Refreshment Room serving lunches, snacks and drinks and also a picnic area where you can sit and watch the trains go by. Whilst at Didcot, remember to take a walk round the Engine Shed to see more of Thomas’ friends.
