Day out with Thomas and friends

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Bulgy the grumpy dou­bledecker bus will join his mate Thomas the Tank En­gine at the Glenbrook Vin­tage Rail­way this week­end.

Trevor the Trac­tion En­gine, Rusty the lit­tle nar­row gauge diesel lo­co­mo­tive, Terence the Trac­tor and Caro­line the Fat Con­troller’s Car will also be at the Day Out With Thomas on Satur­day and Sun­day.

Bulgy will be tak­ing pas­sen­gers for jaunts around the beau­ti­ful Franklin (sorry – Sodor) coun­try­side while Sir Topham Hatt the Fat Con­troller will, as usual, be keep­ing ev­ery­thing run­ning smoothly.

The 12km train rides be­hind the Glenbrook Vin­tage Rail­way steam en­gines are the high­light of the week­end and all of the en­gines will be sport­ing their ‘‘awe­some’’ faces.

Thomas will also be of­fer­ing free rides in his trucks for those who buy tick­ets for the train rides.

There will also be Thomas sto­ry­telling, colour­ing-in, a bouncy cas­tle, face paint­ing and plas­ter model paint­ing.

The first train de­parts at 10am each day and lo­co­mo­tives will run ev­ery 30 min­utes un­til 4pm. Fares cost $25 for adults, $10 for chil­dren 4 to 14 (un­der-4s are free) or $65 for a fam­ily.

To get to Glenbrook Vin­tage Rail­way fol­low the DruryWaiuku route off the South­ern Mo­tor­way and turn left into Glenbrook Sta­tion Rd at Glenbrook.

The rail­way is sign­posted. En­try and park­ing are free.

Grumpy: Vis­i­tors can take a ride on Bulgy the bus at Glenbrook Vin­tage Rail­way this week­end.
