TTE meets V&T
Seventy-year-old Thomas the Tank Engine will be making a guest appearance at the New Virginia & Truckee Railroad next month.
Created by British minister Wilbert Awdry in 1943 to entertain his measles-stricken son Christopher, Thomas went from a series of popular books to a British television series, then to PBS in the United States.
Thomas will be in Virginia City Oct. 23, 24, 25, 30, 31, and Nov. 1. More information can be obtained at 775-847-0380 or VirginiaTruckee.com.
