A day out with Thomas the Tank Engine

All aboard! Thomas the Tank Engine is once again coming to the Danish Railway Museum in Odense this May. Come and meet the famous train and enjoy a wide range of fun activities perfect for young children. 

They can go on train rides with Thomas and his friends, see a real-life steamroller, ride the big red bus, get a Thomas & Friends face painting, or take in a Thomas and Friends movie. 
There will be games, colouring, costumes, and an entire museum to explore.

A mini train bustles along a small track that circles the museum and an entire collection of pristine vintage engines are waiting to be discovered.

Adults will appreciate the rich history of the railway system in Denmark and children will love watching steam billow from the old locomotives as the pistons turn the iron rods. 

A visit to the Danish Railway Museum is a trip back in time to when the romance of trains, conductors, coal, whistles, bells, and steam were still a part of the way we traveled. 
Beyond his centres in the UK, Belgium, and the Netherlands., Odense is the only place in Europe that Thomas pays a ‘visit’, so be sure to catch him while you can! 

A Day Out With Thomas will keep adults who love trains, and children who love Thomas, happily chugging along the tracks.

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
