Thomas Day at Didcot Railway Centre a magical day

About a year ago we discovered a tv series that Baby J loved - Thomas The Tank Engine, & now a year on it still has the same captivating effect on him  & his face lights up when he hears the theme tune & he excitedly points to the tv when it's on. So when my sister in law B mentioned a cousins outing to see Thomas at Didcot railway centre when we in like a flash.

The day was great, from endless rides on Thomas to seeing the Fat Controller. & the other engines it was amazing. Baby J & Cousin S had loads of fun! There was lots for children to do & the day was well planned with a schedule of shows. & activities. All the staff at the centre got into the spirit of things & were dressed as characters. With do much to do it made for a great family day.

I'd recommend taking a picnic as there is a lovely picnic area where you can watch the trains going by, & if you are looking for gifts I'd suggest going in the gift shop first as by 2pm the queue was long out the door. 
The site is buggy accessible after a shirt flight of stairs, with small buggy parks dotted around so you can park up & enjoy things. I'd also suggest not dressing your children in their best clothes, as with trains come grease & oil! 

We loved the day, seeing Baby J. & Cousin S faces in totally awe seeing Thomas was priceless!
