Thomas the Tank Engine is coming back to Burnet on the 2017 Friendship Tour!

If you like working with people and love kids, this is the assignment for you! The Austin Steam Train Association, an organization run by 90% volunteers, is bringing back that lovable children's character, Thomas the Tank Engine to Burnet September 29th through October 1st. Last year we had over 16,000 people ride the train and visit with Thomas' friends, listen to stories and engage in a myriad of children activities and entertainment. It was noisy, it was busy and a lot of fun!

We need a lot of volunteers to make this work! Opportunities are available to ride the train as car attendants, monitor activities, play at the Imagination Station, read stories, apply tattoos and staff a gift shop. All are welcome. Morning and afternoon shifts are available each day. (7am-1:15pm & 12:45pm-7pm) All the fun takes place at the Burnet Community Center in Burnet, TX.

Come take a part in this yearly tradition with the Austin Steam Train Association!

We welcome group volunteers!
