HUNDREDS of young Thomas the Tank Engine fans were chuffed to go full steam ahead to Bo’ness at the weekend for two days of train fun.

The Thomas days are hugely popular annual events and draw in families from all over Scotland.

As well as a trip on a train pulled by one of Thomas’s friends, youngsters enjoyed magic shows, bouncy castles, chair rides, an imagination station, model railway and home baking at Bo’ness station and the Birkhill stop.

Amanda Kilburn, of SRPS, said: “It takes 100 volunteers a day to make it all happen – we are very grateful to them all.

“And Lillias and youngsters from St Andrew’s Church ran the imagination station for us with toy trains and drawing at Bo’ness, while Bo’ness Guides did face painting and temporary tattoos and offered refreshements at Birkhill.”

The Thomas weekend attracted more than 2,100 visitors each day, travelling to and from Birkhill.

They also got to see round the SRPS museum and youngsters carried out a Thomas the Tank Engine treasure hunt.
