Day Out With Thomas

The first of the Day Out With Thomas weekends starts tomorrow September 16th at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden. The next one is on September 22-24. Even though the event is sold out, the Colorado Railroad Museum is still open that day. This means that if you have a Thomas fan in your family, it is still a good idea to go out there. First, you're not paying any more than the standard admission to the museum. Second, almost all of the events are still open to museum patrons. The event tickets that are sold out buy you a 25-minute ride behind Thomas (and another engine to help him pull). For some kids, getting to watch Thomas is just as fun as riding behind him.

Parking is arranged with nearby properties and they run a shuttle to accommodate all the extra visitors to the museum. For more details, visit the Day Out With Thomas FAQ. The museum's admission is re-posted below.
  • Adults: $8.00
  • Seniors (over 60): $7.00
  • Children (2 yrs to 16 yrs): $5.00
    Children (under 2 yrs): Free
  • Family (two adults and children under 16 yrs of one family): $18.00

  1. The G Scale & HO Scale Clubs were also out in force with many engines operting on both the indoor and outdoor layouts. Lots of fun for young and old alike...
