WOW! what a great family day out on the Watercress Line in Ropley, Hampshire seeing Thomas the Tank Engine with all his really great friends and the Fat controller. We had so much fun, on and off the trains all day. The trains just kept on coming so no waiting around - good news with two boys - plus there was a wonderful Punch and Judy show and the magician was brilliant - the kids just loved it!!!!
The Watercress Line is well worth a visit, all the train rides are superb and when we stopped at each station there were different activities and things to do and see along the way. There was no hanging around, even lunch was a smooth and easy as we had a picnic and coffee whilst you wait a few minutes for the next train- perfect!
And as for Diesel… well my two boys certainly enjoyed that ride along with seeing the jolly happy Fat Controller on the tea cup ride joining in all the fun with the children.
I can highly recommend the Watercress Line's Thomas Days. A great day out whatever the weather. As with most of the UK this easter it was not a warm day when we went, but still had a lovely lovely time, plenty to do inside and keep the children amused.
Peep peep Thomas!!!!!! We would definitely go again!!
