My boys were obsessed with Thomas the Train, so when he comes to town, we are the first to buy tickets! Thomas is coming to Burnet, Texas with the Austin Steam Train on September 27 & 28, 2014. I'm a little sad that my boys have outgrown the fun, so I want to encourage you to take your kiddos for this amazing experience. Here's our experience. Ticket info is below.
Do you have a little guy or gal who loves Thomas the Tank Engine too?? Then you must take him to ride on Thomas! We did with both our boys (and girl) when they were younger and all 3 of them were thrilled to "see" Thomas up close & personal. Luckily, Thomas really likes Central Texas, as he visits us every fall.
The Austin Steam Train Association presents a Day Out with Thomas: Mystery on the Rails Tour 2012 coming this weekend, Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th out in Burnet, Texas. I just checked online and tickets are still available for rides on Thomas at the ticket window.
We took our little guy last year and he LOVED it! Still talks about it to this day. Obviously, the ride on Thomas is the highlight. Honestly, a ride on any train is fantastic to a little one, but because Thomas is pulling it makes it even more special.
It is a very well organized event and one that we will remember fondly.
