Oh.my.goodness. Thomas the Tank Engine is coming to the Midland Railway, which is a short drive from Kansas City. If you told me about this a few years ago, I would have given you a blank stare, but these days I am pretty familiar with Thomas and his friends - and I have a little boy who is going to totally freak out with excitement when he sees this "CHOO-CHOO!" live and in person!
Here's the scoop:
A Larger than Life Train for the Ride of Their Life. Thomas the Tank Engine is coming to the Midland Railway on May 31 - June 2 and June 7 - 9.

I can't wait to see the look on Lincoln's face when he sees Thomas! I also am having a great time imagining the meltdown when it is time to get OFF the train...oh dear.
As stated above, my family received tickets to the event to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
