Adventure is in the air! Get your hands on the controls of these amazing model trains! The conductor will punch your ticket so you can build and decorate your own wooden train car that fits your magnetic train set at home! Little train enthusiasts will love asking questions, learning how to operate a train and getting their hands on the controls of model trains courtesy of our friends from the Rock River Valley Division of the National Model Train Association. Then it’s full steam ahead for more fun with Thomas & Friends™.
