Our family went last year for the first time and really enjoyed it. Our only complaint was we felt rushed because we didn’t plan enough time. You could spend all day there. Our girls still talk about it and are excited to go again. Here are some tips and pictures from our trip last year. Enjoy these pictures as well!

  1. My son is defiantly a Thomas fan, likes the others but always says that they didn’t name the show after those guys!

  2. Zac has every car that had been made. We try to visit as much as we can. The National Railroad Museum is his favorite place

  3. My son loves Diesel cause he’s the biggest of them all (his words). Thank you for the opportunity to take him on such a wonderful trip.

  4. Our youngest loves pointing to his Thomas socks and saying “choo cchook Our oldest would love this too. Would be our first time!

  5. My lil guy loves Thomas and his friends… he’s only 7 months so he can’t tell me his favorite but his 5 year old sister’s favorite is Rosie.

  6. My son likes Thomas and Percy!!! Would love to be able to take him to this. Thanks for doing such a great giveaway.

  7. My daughter likes Thomas and Percy… Would love this outing for her since she just became a big sister.

  8. My daughter Emily loves Thomas! As a matter of fact just today she refused to take off her Thomas jammies and so I let her wear them under her clothes all day long!

  9. My daughters love Thomas. They love to sing the song and of course play with their Thomas Train set. We have never been to the National Railroad Museum and appreciate the wonderful opportunity.

  10. My nephews favorite character is Thomas the Train. Whenever we pass railroad tracks he would always say it’s for choo choo trains. He also calls Thomas his train and won’t let anyone touch it.

  11. My son says his favourite is Thomas. I thought he might pick Toby, because he likes the little Toby trains we have the best.

  12. My little guy loves Thomas for course!!! This Mommy likes Gordon! “Oh, the indignity!” He reminds me of Mr. Carson from Downton Abbey lol

  13. My daughter loves them all but I would have to say diesel because of her dad lol thanks for the contest and chance to go 🙂

  14. We just got our son a Thomas the train track master railroad set. He’s been loving Thomas as that’s the only character we bought him. I’m a new mum and my son’s only 20 month old, we are learning a lot of (boy’s – for myself) fun things with Thomas and hope to know more from this fun field trip!

  15. My son Hunter loved Thomas. He takes our 2 tree frogs (Leaper, Greenie) for rides around the house. The frogs love the movement.

  16. my son loves Thomas and Percy Looking forward to going this year since we learned about it too late last year 🙁
