Put away the plastic toy trains and take the kids for a ride they’ll never forget. Children’s books and TV star Thomas the Tank Engine makes a stop at Oklahoma Railway Museum this weekend, bringing fun for the whole family.

“Day Out with Thomas 2007: All Aboard Tour” will visit 45 cities in the Unites States and Canada, and will welcome more than 1 million passengers through December.

The tour stops in Oklahoma City Friday through Sunday and again Oct. 5-7 at Oklahoma Railway Museum, 3400 N.E. Grand.

“Day Out with Thomas” is the only place for families to take a ride on the 15-ton replica of Thomas, the locomotive star of the show.
