A day out with Thomas

Thomas the Tank Engine is back, and will be operating in steam at the Glenbrook Vintage Railway over the weekend of November 14 and 15. This time he’s brought his friends Rusty, the little narrow gauge diesel locomotive, Bulgy, the grumpy double-decker bus, Trevor the Traction Engine, Terence the Tractor, and Caroline, the Fat Controller’s car. Sir Topham Hatt, the Fat Controller will, as usual, be keeping everything running smoothly.
The train, rides behind GVR’s steam engines and continues to be one of the main features of the GVR calendar.
Thomas will be offering free rides in his trucks for those who buy tickets for the 12 km train rides.
There will also be Thomas storytelling, colouring in, a bouncy castle, face painting, plaster model painting and much more, all provided free when a train ticket is purchased.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
