We have visited Strasburg when Thomas was there a few years ago, but we just went to see Thomas and take pictures of him. We didn't actually ride the train. My kids would absolutely love to ride Thomas at Strasburg!!!

We went last year and LOVED it. We thought the ride was a little short, but still really enjoyable.

I left a comment yesterday but don't see it ... we would love to take my son! We tried to go last year but got stuck in traffic and missed the last train ride :-(

We have never done this, but our son loves Thomas!

We went to Strasburg last year just after Thomas's visit. My 2 year old loved seeing the trains and since that visit he has been train/Thomas obsessed!! I'm so excited to take him this year so he can actually see Thomas and Percy!!
