Thomas the Tank Engine In Golden, CO (Part I)

     I am soooooo excited about Saturday!! We are getting free tickets to ride Thomas the Train in Golden, Colorado!!! I had no idea there was a Thomas car so close to where we live! I know the Strassburg Railroad in Pennsylvania has one they store (or lend out?), but I had no idea Thomas traveled! (duh, Michelle. If you have trains, why not make a popular one for the kiddos??)
     Thomas the Train is a popular character in our household, and so are his friends. The kids have a wooden train track that they play with, and of course Thomas cars & all (okay, some...and some are another brand...) his friends!!!
    Thomas will be visiting the  Colorado Railroad Museum  in Golden, CO for a Mystery On the Rails Tour!!! We'll get to meet Sir Topham Hatt (controller of the railway)and participate in activities for the whole family including arts and crafts, storytelling, video viewing, petting zoo and live music!!! The kids will be sooooooo excited!!!!
    "When is Thomas coming??" you ask. He will be at the museum the following Saturdays & Sundays in September: 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23. It looks like you can purchase tickets for rides starting at 8:30am and the last one is 4:45pm on these dates. The Colorado Railroad Museum's website has all the details!! If you're planning on going, you have to get your tickets soon! This event fills up fast!!! (Tickets are $18 for ages 2 on up.)
       Join us as we join Thomas on the rails!!!!

*Disclaimer: I have been given free tickets for our family to attend this event on Saturday. All opinions are my own. I am receiving no other compensation.


  1. I would write a post for free tickets! lol
    My lil brothers would love this :)

  2. It is seldom to see a child who does not have the Thomas the Tank Engine toy if you look around. This dream come true chance of personally experiencing riding on the life sized train can make your family and kids enjoy a lot!
