Attention all you parents of a train fanatic: Thomas is coming into Baltimore in just two weeks!
For an honest review of the experience, check out the piece I wrote last year for The Washington Post Weekend today on Day Out With Thomas. Fun fact: the article features special guest star appearance quotes by Jodifur and Corina of Celebrate Mama.
