Thomas the Tank Engine chugs into Grapevine

Thomas the Tank Engine swings through Grapevine this month on a tour of 45 cities, and over the next two weekends, you can climb aboard at the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. Perfect for preschoolers and parents, this full-on train celebration features 25-minute rides on everybody's favorite tank engine. You can also meet (and get a picture with) Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the railway. And before and after your ride, hang out at the station; there'll be storytelling, live music, arts and crafts, temporary Thomas tattoos, and an exhibit celebrating 65 years of Thomas the Tank Engine.

Thomas train rides are scheduled throughout the day; the first one leaves at 9 a.m., the last at 5:20 p.m. Choose your departure time when you buy your ticket.
