Thomas the Tank Engine

Calling all preschoolers

Sunday 13 August and Monday 14 August 2017
8:00am to 4:00pm
Central Station, Platform 1

Meet a life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine and join in a range of fun rail safety learning activities. Your child is invited to attend the TrackSAFE with Thomas & Friends event. Dressing as your favourite Thomas character is encouraged.

The chance to meet Thomas in person makes this an extraordinary opportunity for your child, but it is more than just fun. TrackSAFE with Thomas & Friends has been especially designed to equip preschoolers with rail safety knowledge that will stay with them for life. One day it could even save their life.

What your child will experience:

  • I know how to be TrackSAFE – Enjoy story time and sing-a-long songs to learn the ways to stay safe.
  • I can show I am TrackSAFE – Mind the Gap – practising getting on and off the train safely.
  • Have a photo with Thomas and say hello

There will be face painting, a balloon artist, a drawing activity table plus the opportunity to meet The Fat Controller! It's a fun day of rail safety activities designed to help keep your child safe whenever they catch the train.

Cost $5 per child. Accompanying adults are free.
Suitable for 2-5 years.
Allow 90 minutes.
