Tickets on sale now for “A Day out with Thomas.” This is an annual even which takes place at the train station in Simpelveld, NL. These tickets sell out very quickly, so if you’re interested, book now! The little ones have so much fun- you can have your picture taken w/Thomas, watch a show with Thomas and Sir Topham Hat, and ride on other trains from station to station. They have activities planned at each station- so much to do!
For Tickets: www.miljoenenlijn.nl or www.zlsm.de and click on the Thomas tickets link at the bottom right of the page. This will take you directly to the Euroticket link, where you buy the tickets. You can also call them and order on the telephone- 0900-3636966 (40 Eurocents per min). I am guessing their English is good enough to help you. They will mail you the tickets with a schedule of the day.
When you go, know that parking in Simpelveld for this event is crazy- we had to park in a random spot on the street and walk about 15 minutes to the station. It was worth it, though! This was one of the highlights of our time in Europe for my son (who was 4 when we went).
