The collection of 70 mini engines, modelled after world renowned Thomas the No. 1 little blue engine, is on display in Puteri Harbour from now till Jan 7 to thrill children of all ages and even their parents, who grew up with familiar characters like Thomas, Percy, James and Gordon.

Dubbed the Mini & Mighty Malaysia Tour, this nationwide tour of 70 units of meter-high engines kicked off last April in Petaling Jaya and has travelled to Malacca and Penang before arriving at Thomas Town in Puteri Harbour.

Various sections of Thomas Town and Puteri Harbour have been taken over by Thomas & Friends for fans to come face-to-face with their favourite engine, not only in its classic design but also in various themes like Dino, Heroes, Spooky, Racers, Neon, Robo, Chillin’ and Metallic.

“It’s the first time we have embarked on such an ambitious roadshow with 70 mini engines which were exclusively produced for the Tour by our partner, Mattel South East Asia,” said Thomas Town Puteri Harbour general manager, Fahruddin Najumudeen.  “I believe the exhibition will be an once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans,” he added.

Besides story-telling sessions and the Thomas Town Track Challenge, one of the must-see attractions in Thomas Town this season is the Thomas Sodor Surprise show which is performed live at 2pm daily and at 1pm on Saturday, Sunday and on public holidays.
