Hundreds of visitors spent their Easter weekend meeting their favourite characters from the Thomas the Tank Engine series.

East Anglian Railway Museum played host to the four-day event which saw young children get up close to Thomas and other trains such as, Percy, Daisy and Toby.

Visitors to the museum, off Station Road, Wakes Colne, were able to enjoy a variety of different train rides, while there was also a chance to meet the Fat Controller and troublesome sweepers, Rusty and Dusty.

Children were able to take part in activities set up inside the museum where they had the chance the chance to obtain their Junior Engineer Certificate.

Some classic Thomas stories were also re-enacted throughout the weekend. East Anglian Railway Museum will be hosting further special events throughout the rest of April. Visit for more details.
