Bring your little ones for a thrilling day with Thomas the Tank Engine at Wales West Light Railway May 5–6 and 12–13, 2012.
And being greeted by Sir Topham Hatt, controller of the railway, will be almost as exciting as the train ride. If you listen, you can already hear the squeals of the children as they see their favorite characters come to life at Wales West Light Railway in Silverhill, Alabama.
Seldom will you find a two-day festival with such variety—variety of entertainment, variety of educational and historical exhibits, variety of cultures, variety of time periods, variety of edible delights. Visit the many “buildings” of Heritage Village, an open replica of early 20th-century Foley.
Many local arts and crafts experts will be offering their handiwork, so be prepared to make at least a couple of trips back to your car with gifts for yourself, your friends and your family. Mention the word “choo-choo” and the older generations may smile with memories of the upbeat 1940s song “Chattanooga Choo-Choo.” But the younger generations will likely become excited about a particular blue locomotive named Thomas. Regardless of which generation you are part of, there is no denying the appeal of Thomas the Tank Engine and the wildly popular, internationally televised series Thomas and Friends.
Over the course of three spring weekends, your children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews can let their imaginations soar as they ride on the beloved train. The $18 admission fee for ages 2 and older includes a 25-minute train ride, videos of the television show, a chance to meet and take pictures with Sir Topham Hatt (head of Thomas’s railway), storytelling, building with Mega Bloks, live music, temporary tattoos of Thomas and his friends from the Island of Sodor, the Imagination Station with coloring and art projects, and a model train club demonstration.
Plan now to attend Day Out with Thomas—The Celebration Tour in Silverhill, Alabama at Wales West Light Railway, America’s only authentic Welsh narrow gauge railway. To reach Wales West from our Gulf Shores area beaches, follow Highway 59 north to County Road 32.
Advance ticket purchase is encouraged due to assigned train departures (every 45 minutes), but you may also purchase at the door. Stay informed of local activities, vacation rental specials and more by subscribing to this Discover Alabama Beaches blog and Meyer Muse, and by following Meyer Real Estate on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.

It's unclear what this means for the future of the show or if the roles will be recast.
HIT Entertainment, which also owns such properties as Bob the Builder and Barney the Dinosaur, was sold to Mattel in 2011 for $680 million.


It’s been a surprise to see Thomas the Tank Engine slammed in the media recently by Labour minister Mary Creagh.
Creagh described Thomas & Friends as responsible for setting a poor example to children and pointed out that the few female characters featured in the show are portrayed as annoyances, constantly disrupting the functioning of the railway. The balance of male to female characters within Thomas & Friends may be somewhat outdated.
Although there is truth behind Creagh’s claims, she is judging Awdry’s stories from the 20th century in relation to current social norms and gender standards. Hit Entertainment, which owns the rights to Thomas & Friends, recognised that there is a historical imbalance and in order to update it have announced female engines are in development.

Full steam ahead with Thomas the Tank Engine Party Supplies, featuring Thomas and friends on tableware, plates, napkins, and cups. A number of Thomas-themed activities will be available, so plan to spend a few hours creating unique arts and crafts, choosing and attaching temporary tattoos, getting wrapped up in the tales of the storyteller, watching Thomas videos, singing songs and more. Then call 888-569-5337 or visit Day Out With Thomas™ Mystery On The Rails Tour 2012 to purchase your tickets right away, before they sell out. But that’s exactly what you and your family will be treated to at the 11th Annual Heritage Harbor Days on November 5 and 6, 2011.
Explore a school, doctor’s office, home, general store, sewing shop and candle maker’s work area. Banjos, bodhrins, fiddles and spoons share the stage with the Mexican Folkloric Dancers and Native American Dancers.
Once you’ve mastered that skill, round out mealtime with favorite yummies such as gyros, po-boys, kabobs, corn dogs, funnel cakes, lemonade, waffle-cone ice cream treats, kettle corn, pork rinds and much more. And just when you think you’ve experienced all there is at the festival, the organizers toss one more popular family activity your way: Fireworks at dusk on Sunday create a perfect, timeless way to close out the experience-packed weekend.
She stated the show should include more female engines to encourage girls to become train drivers. There is a clear shortage of female train drivers in Britain and with 95.8% of workers male, it’s natural to consider the reasons behind the statistics and for us to question whether job opportunities within the sector are equally advertised between genders. Cartoons are largely responsible for presenting images of gender that are somewhat stereotypical and traditional, examples of girlhood usually involving little ponies and supportive sidekicks.
However, the show is fun and has been enjoyed by generations of children for what it is – toy trains puffing through the jaunts of locomotive life.


Thomas & Friends has been running for decades and it easy to see how in modern viewing, certain principles and standards of the show become old fashioned.
In this case it appears political correctness has got in the way of a simple children’s story. Add party favors, decorations, and invitations to Thomas the Tank Engine Party Supplies for a tootin’ Thomas the Train birthday! Having our themes online allows our customers to preview products before they come in to buy them. The excitement can barely be contained when your little one steps onto the train for a 25-minute ride.
Or bring the grandparents, aunts and uncles to share in your child’s joy and the beach fun in a 4-bedroom condo in Gulf Shores.
Watch for Davy Crockett, who will share tales of his adventures as he walks about the festival grounds.
Bluegrass and folk songs are interspersed with popular music of today, including Broadway, and the Navy Band will highlight patriotic music.
Such a specific attack on the show is harsh of Creagh; she is imposing retrospective political correctness on a quaint children’s story from the 1940s.
Recent CBeebies remake of Topsy and Tim caused a media stir, the show, supposedly updated for the 21st century, was slated for reinforcing outdated gender stereotypes (Topsy inside decorating princess cupcakes, Tim playing outside with his quad bikes). Mix and match Thomas the Tank Engine Party Supplies with our solid color tableware for a custom birthday theme. Sunday’s Children’s Village stage line-up brings storytellers, dancers, martial arts, pageantry and batons. Is Creagh, as Labour’s shadow transport secretary, really addressing the matter at hand by singling out Thomas the Tank Engine as a contributor to negative stereotypes in the workplace today? It’s unlikely that Creagh will tackle the issue of the shortage of female train drivers through publicly criticising a children’s television show. It is important to note that Awdry was writing in a very different time period, inspired to write the Thomas books by adventures of his own childhood spent overlooking a railway tunnel.
