Thomas is Heading Down the Track to So Cal and I have a #Giveaway! @DOWT @OERM


Day out with Thomas is a beloved tradition in our family! Reed fell in love with trains around two and since then our entire family has enjoyed this tradition together! Here are some of my favorites from years past. It makes my heart hurt how much they’ve grown but I also love being able to say we’ve had this traditions for all these years!

Thomas is making his way back down the track to Southern California and will be arriving in November! Here are all the details!


All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends are once again chugging into the Orange Empire Railway Museum for five days in November.

Tickets are on sale through September 1 for boarding times on the 7th, 8th, 11th, 14th and 15th of November. Train departure times fill up fast. So get your tickets now at Save on service charges by calling the museum directly. (951) 943-3020.

Day Out With Thomas 2015 offers aspiring engineers and their families the opportunity to take a 25-minute ride with the famous engine and a 15-minute ride with his railway friend Percy. Children can also meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Superintendent of the Railroad from the Island of Sodor.

Enjoy a wide range of fun activities perfect for children. There will be games, a petting zoo, bounce houses, coloring, live children’s music, sing-alongs and storytelling. There will also be Thomas & Friends temporary tattoos, Thomas & Friends train tables and building activities, videos and a Thomas gift store.

There will be street car and trolley rides and an entire museum to explore. A visit to the Orange Empire Railway Museum is a trip back in time to when trains, conductors, whistles, bells and steam were a part of the way we traveled.

A Day Out With Thomas will keep adults who love trains, and children who love Thomas, happily chugging along the tracks. Families should arrive no later than one hour prior to scheduled departure. Tickets start at $19 for ages two and older.
