Stops in Lebanon Aug. 21-23 & 28-30

Here's an interesting option for a daytrip this upcoming weekend or next: Thomas the Tank Engine is coming to Lebanon, Ohio, as part of a nationwide Day Out with Thomas tour. Families are invited to join Thomas when the #1 Engine pulls into LM&M Railroad Aug. 21-23 and Aug. 28-30.

This fun-filled event offers little engineers and their families the opportunity to take a ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, star of the popular Thomas & Friends series.

The tour, now in its 20th year, will make 42 stops across the U.S. and Canada and is expected to welcome nearly one million passengers in 2015.
