Day Out With Thomas

Join Thomas & FriendsTM to enjoy train rides and take part in many Thomas-themed activities, most of which are free when you purchase the Event Pass.
A wide range of Thomas & FriendsTM merchandise will be on sale, with hot and cold food and drinks available to purchase onsite. Two trains, one diesel and one steam, will be operating 12km trips over the Glenbrook Vintage Railway Line to Fernleigh and return, departing at 30-minute intervals. The first train departs at 9:30am, with the last train departing at 4:00pm.


Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Auckland we sadly have to announce the CANCELLATION of our Day Out with Thomas weekend scheduled for the 6th and 7th of November 2021.

Visitors who have pre-booked will shortly be contacted and will be refunded fully over the next couple of weeks. Please be patient as we work through the high number of bookings.

The safety and experience of our visitors is our top priority, and the Day Out with Thomas can only take place in Alert Level One where there are few restrictions on large events. This lockdown has also put us several weeks behind on our winter maintenance programme which includes work on our carriages and locomotives used for the Day Out with Thomas.

We are extremely disappointed to once again be unable to run the Day Out with Thomas, and are working hard to adapt the Day Out with Thomas experience so that we can bring Thomas back in 2022. In the meantime, we are continuing to work on bringing you smaller scale events and other family fun activities here at the Glenbrook Vintage Railway.

We will update you here and on Facebook first as soon as we know when the next Day Out with Thomas event can be held.
