Thomas fans can travel to see him from any Nene Valley railway station. Just jump on board the big steam train hauled by one of his Friends, buy a one day ticket price and that will include everything including your travel up and down the whole of the line, entertainment and the all-important ride behind the star of the show, Thomas!

If you’d like to travel directly to Thomas' Wansford home, the ticket price will include a ride on one of his bigger friends all the way along the line to Peterborough and back.

Please note; Thomas only operates between Wansford and Yarwell, and will depart at 09:50, 10:40, 11:35, 12:25, 13:20, 14:10, 15:05 and 15:55

Wansford station will be transformed into a very special place. You’ll see lots of familiar characters, and Thomas fans can expect plenty of fun with the superstar engine doing what he does best, meeting and greeting his friends!. Thomas will be hauling trains through the Tunnel to Yarwell and can also be seen in action around Wansford. Lots of games for the family on the platform and a Bouncy Castle.

The 0-6-0T engine No. 1800 was built by Hudswell Clarke in 1947 at about the time when Rev.W Awdry wrote his second book in which Thomas appeared. The little blue engine spent its entire working life at the British sugar Corporations' Peterborough factory pushing wagons of sugar beet up an incline until the day came when a diesel engine replaced the steam power of Thomas. The Peterborough Railway Society purchased this delightful little engine on 9th September 1973 and he was moved to the Nene Valley Railway, where he has since delighted his friends and delighting children of all ages.
