My dad invited us to go see the real life sized Thomas the Tank Engine on Saturday. He was appearing at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris. I had heard of the museum, but this was the first time I had been there.

Erin used to watch Thomas videos all the time when she was a little girl, but didn't remember anything about the plot anymore. My dad has been intrigued by trains since he was a little boy growing up in Riverside. He used to bug his dad until he got to go outside to see trains when they came by his house.

There were many children there to see Thomas and Sir Topham Hatt. We all had a good time and I had fun taking pictures. We rode on an old passenger car pulled by Thomas the Tank Engine. Tickets for the ride were sold out except for standby tickets. My dad had preordered our tickets and our ride time was 4:30 pm just before the museum closed at 5:00 pm.
