Thomas the Tank Engine is in Medina for a two week stop on the ‘Day Out With Thomas’ North American tour.

The #1 Engine will be at the Medina Railroad Museum May 20-21 and May 27-28, offering a full day of fun for the entire family.

Families who turn out will be able to take a 25 minute ride on Thomas’ train to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway.

They’ll also be able to enjoy the full Thomas & Friends Imagination Station at the Medina Railroad Museum, featuring crafts, photo opps, giveaways, storytelling, video viewing, and live entertainment.

In honor of this year’s theme, A Day Out With Thomas: The Friendship Tour 2017, the event will offer hours of fun, friendship-themed activities for children of all ages.

Over the next two weekends, Medina Railroad Museum officials say they’re expecting about 12,000 children to come out for the event.
