"Thomas the Tank Engine" Returns to Strasburg!

Thomas the Tank Engine is a character known to millions of kids around the world, through his syndicated TV series and videos narrated by Ringo Starr, George Carlin, and Alec Baldwin.  Each year he makes 3 appearances at the Strasburg Rail Road in Lancaster County, to the joy of children of all ages.  He and his fellow railroad cars and friends from the Island of Sodor will be here again from September 17th to the 25th.  If you and your children have a fascination with trains (and what kid doesn't!), then "A Day Out With Thomas" is a day not to be missed!  We'd love to have your family as our guests here at the Apple Bin Inn... just 10 minutes from the Strasburg Rail Road.  Give us a call... you'll be glad you did!
