Kirklees Light Railway: My First Day Out With Thomas

July 13 @ 9:45 am - July 14 @ 5:00 pm

July 2019

SAT 13th

SUN 14th

9:45 AM – 5 PM

Kirklees Light Railway, Park Mill Way, HD8 9XJ Clayton West

Join Thomas the Tank Engine & his friends, Percy, Toby, Mavis & Emily as they visit the Kirklees Light Railway from the Island of Sodor.

The Fat Controller will also be on hand during the engines’ visit to make sure they are all being really useful and behaving themselves. He will conduct an opening ceremony each day at 9.45am, assisted by Rusty & Dusty, the trusty platform sweepers!

The first train of the day is pulled by Thomas and departs Clayton West at 10am. The remaining trains are pulled by Emily or our home locos, Owl & Sian. Trains will depart every 30 minutes thereafter until the final train departs Clayton West at 4pm.

PLEASE NOTE: the first train (10am) is the ONLY train that Thomas pulls to Shelley. After that journey, he will spend his day providing platform rides at Clayton West Station.
