MEDINA – Thomas the Tank Engine is covered up today behind the Olde Pickle Factory in Medina.

He will be busy the next two weekends in Medina, with 10,000 to 12,000 riders expected to take 25-minute train rides on Thomas.

The train engine is making his 13th stop in Medina. Thomas has 42 events this year in the United and Canada. Medina is the lone stop in New York. Thomas is hosted by the Medina Railroad Museum, and many activities are planned on May 20-21, and May 27-28.

In addition to riding the train, there is an imagination station at the Railroad Museum with crafts, photo opportunities, giveaways, storytelling and other live entertainment.

Thomas the Tank Engine is pictured in May 2015, when the train drew big crowds of children and families to Medina.
