In 2018, the Kirklees Light Railway will once again welcome Thomas the Tank Engine & his friends, Percy, Toby, Mavis & Emily from the Island of Sodor!
The Fat Controller will also be on hand during the engines' visit to make sure they are all being really useful and behaving themselves. He will conduct an opening ceremony each day at 9.45am, assisted by Rusty & Dusty, the trusty platform sweepers!
The first train of the day is pulled by Thomas and departs Clayton West at 10am (PLEASE NOTE: the first train is the ONLY train that Thomas pulls to Shelley). The remaining trains are pulled by Percy, Emily or our home loco, Owl.
Trains will depart every 30 minutes thereafter until the final train departs Clayton West at 4pm.
Advance booking is strongly advised and can be done via: dayoutwiththomas.co.uk/kirklees or by calling 0843 208 1840 (please note: this is an external ticketing line and NOT the railway).
