Real trains. Model trains. Toy trains.


Thomas Big Day Out

Thomas Races a Slug

Thomas vs Slug – World’s Slowest Race – Surprise Ending. In the mostvexciting race between two things that should never race – – a wooden train toy and a large Bavarian Slug. Surprise ending as rage takes a much unexpected turn! Yes this is just for fun!

We were taking a hike in the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden Germany and the rain had drawn out more slugs than usual. We decided not to walk any further as it was hard to take steps without getting a slug squashed 🤢

G Scale Thomas the Tank Engine Lionel Train Set

This is our 3 Thomas & Friends G Scale set. All 3 are different track. This is the newer Lionel G Scale Track. We also have James with the older style track and Percy with Bachmann track. The couplers can be changed from Knuckle couplers to European style couplers. Would like to set up track outside with these eventually!

Great Race Round 2 is Over – On to the Round 3

We have finished round 2. Getting ready for Round 3 – 8 locomotives left – Douglas, Duck, Bill, Ben, Henry, Thomas, Percy, & Gordon.

The next round should be closer races. We will try to include trackside interviews and color commentary. Maybe some trash talk? We will see

Sir Topham Hatt Scares Children

From our visit to Thomas Big Day Out at the Tennessee Valley Railroad back in 2004. I don’t think my 3 and 4 year old kids were expecting to see a giant mascot. lol
