All aboard! Yesterday Ben met Thomas the Tank Engine and The Fat Controller at The Workshops Rail Museum where the popular books and television series was brought to life with fun characters, entertainment and activities. Ben began saying ‘Toot, Toot’ as we approached the gates. I don’t think we realised how much he loves trains. I am not sure why as he loves most anything with wheels. There was so much to do: The Thomas Play Pit- an air conditioned room full tables filled with train sets, The Thomas Creation Station -an area for art and craft and The Workshops Express Miniature Train Ride just to name a few. Ben was so excited that we had to have a little break for him to slow down. Thankfully there are several airconditioned areas. It was a combination of ‘train overload’, the incredible heat and not being able to run around as he pleased. There is so much more to see, so we took the opportunity to upgrade to a season pass. Now we can visit regularly as there are always new displays and activities, especially for kids. I also purchased Ben’s first wooden Thomas engine. He has played with it all morning.
