All aboard! Young fans of Thomas the Tank Engine can spend a day out riding along with the blue locomotive in Japan.

In the Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan, the Oigawa Railway company has restarted its Day Out with Thomas the Tank Engine rides on 26 June 2020. This was suspended from its original start date in May because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
