If you have a kid (or kid at heart) in the family that loves Thomas the Tank Engine, you won't want to miss out on this summer event in Duluth.

Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends are all coming to life August 6, 7, 8 and 13, 14, 15 in Duluth for "Day Out With Thomas" at North Shore Scenic Railroad. 

This is an opportunity for kids to take a ride with their favorite tank engine, meet the railway controller Sir Topham Hatt, have fun in Imagination Station, explore the Railroad Museum, take a ride with Thomas’ friend Percy, and much more!

The theme for this year is "Party Train" and this event also serves as the biggest fundraiser of the year for Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth.
