- My First Day Out with Thomas

My First Day Out with Thomas

In consideration of public health concerns, we’ve made the decision to cancel May, July & August's Day Out With Thomas events. The health and well-being of our guests and employees is our primary concern always. We felt this was the best choice given current health concerns and the restrictions/measures currently in place at the KLR  We wholeheartedly apologise for any inconvenience and upset this will cause.

For those who have purchased tickets, we would be delighted to offer you an exchange to the event in November 2020.  If you would like to exchange, you can do this by e-mailing info@quaytickets.com before the date of your original booking, stating the date you would like to exchange to.

If you would prefer to have a refund then there is no need to contact us or Quay Tickets as refunds will be processed ASAP after the original date of your event. Please bear with us/Quay Tickets at this exceptionally busy time.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.


My First Day Out with Thomas - 7-8 November 2020

Join Thomas the Tank Engine & his friends, Percy, Toby, Mavis & Emily as they visit the Kirklees Light Railway from the Island of Sodor in Thomas' 75th anniversary year!

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 3pm.

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.
