Day Out With Thomas 

When: Sat., May 21 2011

Thomas the Tank Engine was created by an English clergyman and his son more than 65 years ago. Ever since, the little locomotive's smiling face and blue physique have been loved by kids and adults alike — in books, on television, and as a shiny wooden (and now plastic) toy. But the star of Day Out With Thomas ain't no trifling plaything. It's a fully operational, 15-ton replica of the storybook engine, pulling into the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad's Boston Mills Station this morning with a five-day cargo of fun. Junior conductors can take 25-minute rides in cars pulled by Thomas, complete with a visit from the Controller of the Railway, Sir Topham Hatt. (Trains depart every hour.) In addition to the train ride, Thomas-themed activities at the nearby Imagination Station will include inflatable bouncers, miniature train displays, videos, storytelling, and live music. The Day Out fun chugs along from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today, tomorrow, and next weekend, May 27 through 29; tickets for kids 2 and older are $18. Reserve yours by calling 866-468-7630 or online at cvsr.com. The Boston Mills Station is at 7100 Riverview Rd. in Peninsula. — Chrissy Niehaus
