    1. Hi Paul,

      A limited number of tickets are reserved for walk-up sales on the day of the event. A lot of the mid-late morning and early afternoon trips tend to sell out. If you know what time you want to ride, we recommend purchasing your tickets ahead of time. If you are flexible as to what time you can ride, you should be able to get by purchasing tickets on the day of the event. We may not be able to get you on the departure time that you prefer, but we will get you on the next available train.

      Thanks much! We hope to see you in September.

  1. Is this something that may happen again? These dates don’t work for my family unfortunately but we would love to try again if Thomas comes back.

    1. Hi Amy,

      Traditionally, Thomas has operated for two consecutive weekends in the middle of September. At this point I can’t see why next year would be any different. As soon as dates have been finalized, and tickets are ready to go on sale, an announcement will be posted to our website, Facebook, and Twitter.

      We hope to see you next year!
