Today we are live in Grapevine, Texas on the Grapevine Vintage Railroad learning about Day Out With Thomas and how the Museum of the American Railroad puts on this annual family fun event for North Texas.  Join us!

For 68 years, children have been captivated by the courageous adventures of Thomas and his engine friends.  Pulling out of the station for its 19th consecutive ride on the rails, the Day Out With Thomas: The Thrill of the Ride Tour 2014 will visit more than 45 cities in the United States and Canada. Day Out With Thomas is the only place for families to take a ride with a 15-ton replica of everybody’s favorite #1 engine, Thomas the Tank Engine, and enjoy Thomas-themed activities at the Imagination Station, including stamps, temporary tattoos and hands-on arts and crafts.  Each year the tour grows, traveling to new destinations, adding new activities and welcoming new visitors.  

Day Out with Thomas is a collaboration between the Museum of the American Railroad of Frisco, Texas and the Grapevine Vintage Railroad in Historic Downtown Grapevine, Texas.  Proceeds from the event go toward historic rail preservation.  The event introduces a new generation of children to rail travel and the importance of rail preservation.

On the show today, we will speak to the several guests who have volunteered, planned and put on the Day Out With Thomas event for the Museum of the American Railroad and hear from some of the attendees as well... so stay tuned, there's lots to learn about the #1 Blue Engine and his friends!  And we will take your calls too!
