Chuggington activity area
For a traintastic time at Railfest, bring your Koko, Brewster and Wilson fan (whether young or old) to the Chuggington Activity Area.
Every fan who visits will receive a special Chuggington book which links the animated favourites to their original vehicles (look out for two at Railfest!). Bring your camera: younger trainspotters get the chance to dress up as one of the famous Chuggers.
Get crafty with Deltic and Brewster make-and-take activity. Plus see the giant Wilson model made out of Megablocks – and guess the number of blocks used for your chance to win a huge Chuggington prize.
The Family Chill-out Area located is the perfect place to unwind. Enjoy a variety of train-themed TV shows on the big screen, and play with Brewster and other toys in a special Chuggington playspace.
