Thomas the Tank Engine set to steam into North Conway

May 31, 2017 by  

Beloved children’s character Thomas the Tank Engine will soon be making tracks for North Conway, and local families are invited to come out and take a ride.

According to its organizers, the event, which tends to draw thousands to the Conway Scenic Railroad, is one of its most popular summer events, and they have added something new for this year. Two autism-friendly trains will be added to the schedule, and these have been specially planned to be as quiet as possible for those with sensory processing issues, and the crossings will be flagged using manual methods to reduce the number of times the whistle will need to be used.

Each of the young passengers will receive a Junior Engineer’s Certificate, and they will also have an opportunity to meet their fellow rider Frodo the Walking Tank, who is a large tortoise. A print company can produce a variety of branded promotional products for use during a function such as this.

Tickets for the rides will be $20 for people ages two and over for both of the Fridays, and 9:00 am, 2:00 and 3:00 pm Saturday departures. Other Saturday tickets, and also those for Sunday, will be priced at $22. These fees include the other activities and live entertainment as well as the train trip.

The Conway Scenic Railroad can be found at 38 Norcross Circle in North Conway, and it will be welcoming Thomas and Percy on July 21 to 23, and also July 28 to 30. Both tickets and additional details can be obtained on the railway company’s website.
