‘Thomas & Friends’ on the Battlefield Line Railway (10, 11, 17, 18, 19 Oct)

October 10, 2009toOctober 18, 2009

Yes, that famous little blue tank engine from the Island of Sodor is visiting Shackerstone Station.

There will also be some other friends of Thomas appearing over the weekends. Daisy and Diesel will be out and about along with some of the Shackerstone locomotives that you may have already met. The engines will be busying themselves around the station site with some fun and games and maybe some shunting of trucks and wagons.

Who will you cheer on in the Engines Races? Will the Dirty Diesels play fair or will the Steam Engines prevail?

There will be fun and games for all the family including;

* Colouring Competition
* Engine Races & Games
* Face Painting
* Rides In Daisy The Diesel Railcar
* Story Re-enactments
* Thomas & Friends DVD Stories

Rides on the main train to Bosworth Battlefield

Make sure that you say hello to Sir Topham Hatt. Please don’t call him the “Fat Controller”, at least where he can hear you!
