A familiar face rolled into Phillipsburg, N.J., on Friday.

Thomas the Tank Engine is in town. Kids can hitch a ride on the famous train, thanks to Delaware River Railroad Excursions.

Inside, they're treated to games, arts and crafts and storytelling.

Thomas will be taking off every hour between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
