July 14, 2013 - This weekend saw the Museum's first five-car passenger train since 1988, made possible by rehabilitation of coach 218. That's the coach with the beautiful colored glass windows your GiveBig donations supported this spring. There's still work to be done before it becomes a regular part of the train, but it's pretty exciting to be able to expand capacity and offer a little more room during Day Out With Thomas.
