Steam rail­way to host birth­day event

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

POP­U­LAR steam en­gine Thomas will be the star guest at his ‘birth­day party’ at Nene Val­ley Rail­way this month.

On June 26 and 27, sta­tion staff and vis­i­tors will cel­e­brate the en­gine’s birth­day on a spe­cial party train, run­ning from Wans­ford sta­tion.

Thomas will haul his train through a ‘haunted tun­nel’ to the sta­tion at Yar­well, where young pas­sen­gers will dis­em­bark and to play games with a chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer in a mar­quee. There will also be chance to meet the driver plus fire­man and chil­dren can have their pho­to­graphs taken with Thomas.

The event will close with chil- dren sing­ing Happy Birth­day to Thomas be­fore board­ing the train again to Wans­ford and leav­ing for home with goody bags.

There will be three de­par­ture times - 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Tick­ets are now on sale, priced at £12 per per­son. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 01780 784444 or visit
