Preschoolers at Park Canyon Apartments will get the thrill of their lives when Thomas the Tank Engine arrives at Chattanooga for the Day Out with Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014.  He will not only take his fans for a ride, but also talk to them for the very first time on the tour! The event, which takes place on April 26 & 27 and May 3, 4 & 10, 2014, will be hosted by the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. For three back-to-back weekends, kids and their families are invited to take a 25 minute ride on their favorite engine

Day Out With Thomas™ is a family event that offers children and their families the unique opportunity to take a ride with the classic storybook engine, Thomas the Tank Engine™ at regional heritage railroads across the country.

Since Thomas the Tank Engine left the depot more than 65 years ago, this Really Useful Engine and his Island of Sodor friends have chugged their way into the hearts of preschoolers and grownups worldwide. Based on The Railway Series of classic stories authored by a father who loved trains and wanted a shared experience with his son, Thomas & Friends™ is a rite of passage that inspires the imagination while teaching the life lessons of friendship, exploration and cooperation.
