Tickets for Thomas the Tank on Sale

Tickets on Sale for Family Friendly Event

Tickets are now on sale for a fun family event in Duluth.

Back from his normal summer vacation “seaside” on the Island of Sodor, Thomas the Tank Engine™ and his friends wanted to travel some more.

They liked going places with big water, friendly people and a lot to see and do.

So of course that little blue tank engine #1 chose to visit Duluth again this summer.

Tickets for this summer’s “Day Out With Thomas” in Duluth are now on sale and there’s a special promo code that will save early shoppers $2 a ticket by using the code EMILY16 when ordering tickets at

Thomas and his friends will get together for all sorts of fun at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum and on the North Shore Scenic Railroad for the weekends of August 5th, 6th and 7th and the following weekend August 12th, 13th and 14th.

There will be train rides with Thomas, live music, a magician, juggler, a huge indoor and outdoor play area featuring three big, colorful bouncy houses, face painting, craft tables and of course the “All things Thomas” Gift Shop.

Festival food and beverages will be available and guest/visitors will have access to the Railroad Museum and the other historic and artistic displays at the Depot in downtown Duluth.

This year’s Thomas visit to Duluth is being called the “Ready, Set, Go” tour of 2016 and will feature many new and fun events.

Thomas’s driver and Sir Topham Hatt, the Fat Controller, will accompany Thomas to Duluth. Emily will be here as well to welcome the Island of Sodor celebrities to town.

Not to be confused with “Emily,” one of the other engines that work with Thomas on the railroad on Sodor and the one who saved Thomas and Oliver from a terrible accident on the “cross points,” this Emily is the new mayor of Duluth, the Honorable Emily Larson.

She will greet Thomas and Sir Topham Hatt at a special welcoming ceremony on Friday August 5th at 10 a.m. trackside at the Depot.

“This will be a great summer in Duluth with the Air Show, Tall Ships and Thomas all visiting us one after the other,” said Mayor Larson. “This could be the biggest tourist season on record.”

Last summer Thomas attracted more than 18,000 of his friends over the two weekends he was visiting here on the North Shore Scenic Railroad.

This is one of the largest “Day Out With Thomas” events on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.

It takes nearly a thousand volunteers and staff to bring so much fun to Duluth and the Railroad appreciates all of those hardworking individuals and organizations that make Thomas and his friends feel so welcome.
