Make your day a Day Out With Thomas as Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends Percy, Toby, Emily and Mavis, visit the Kirklees Light Railway from the Island of Sodor!
The Fat Controller will be on hand to make sure the engines are all being really useful and behaving themselves and will conduct an opening ceremony each day at 9.45am, assisted by Rusty & Dusty, the trusty platform sweepers!
The first train of the day is pulled by Thomas and departs Clayton West at 10am (PLEASE NOTE: the 10am train is the ONLY train pulled by Thomas to Shelley). Trains will depart every 30 minutes thereafter until the final train departs Clayton West at 4pm. The remaining trains are pulled by Emily, Percy or our home loco, Owl.
After Thomas returns from his 10am trip to Shelley, he will remain at Clayton West to give platform rides for everyone to enjoy!
We strongly recommend booking in advance for this event. We may be unable to accommodate walk ups on the day as this is a very busy event.
Bookings can be made via this website.
