Don't Miss the Train
Don't you hate it when you miss the train? If only you'd left a bit earlier. Well, here's your opportunity to catch Thomas the Tank Engine and friends before it's too late.

The Train Shed in Luddenham has for many years brought the much-loved children's characters from Thomas the Tank Engine to our backyard. Thousands of children have enjoyed riding on miniature versions of Thomas, Percy, Gordon, Mavis, James and Toby and many a birthday has been celebrated at this charming and unique venue.

The miniature trains with passengers aboard weave their way around a lovely rural setting with the journey crossing a bridge, passing a pond, steaming past "Gnome Knoll", "Trevor" and "Crock's Scrapyard", crossing a bridge again, going around the "Branch Line", through the tunnel and back up to Wellsworth Station. From a distance, visitors can track the journey as the trains toot toot, choo choo and children squeal with delight.

While the kids (big and small) revel in their ride, accompanying visitors can enjoy some delicious food from the kiosk or bring your own picnic and BBQ. Parking is plentiful.

But be quick - the Train Shed will be closing on Sunday, 26 October 2014 to make way for the Badgerys Creek airport. Until then, The Train Shed will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm. After that, the Fat Controller will hang up his hat and the hard working trains will be retired until a new home can be found for them.

So check your timetable and find some time to visit The Train Shed before the station closes.

Free admission. Ride tickets are $6.00 each, 6 for $30, or unlimited rides passes for $35 per child per day. Group Discounts are also available.

Children 2 years or under can take a free adult on the ride with them.
