The Island of Sodor

Next Stop: Sodor!

Today we went on a bit of an adventure out to the Trainworks Museum, about 90 minutes south west of the city in Thirlmere. On most days, the Trainworks museum is a historical train museum, showcasing bits of railway history over the last hundred years. Today, they had a much younger audience, who had come to see Thomas the Tank Engine!

Xavier had a blast hopping up and down on the trains, and even got to take a 45 minute ride on a steam engine. He spent most of the trip standing on the rails between cars watching the slats move beneath his feet.

Back at the event, they had tiny train rides set up, an opportunity to take a ride on Toby, or get your picture with Thomas and his friends. They also had bouncy castles and slides which Xavier loved. (Who doesn’t?)
