In Memory of Oliver


On the last day of March 2006 CWCF gave Oliver a day out to remember with help from the amazing staff at Spa Valley Railway. We were able to hire Thomas from his owners, Hit Entertainment, for the day so that we could give Oliver’s family and friends a super day out.

Oliver and the Fat Controller

The Fat Controller kept everyone on their toes. We went for a long ride where Oliver kept his eye on Thomas’s speed and told the Fat Controller if Thomas went faster than 25mph.

The on-board crew from Spa Valley Railway kept the children happy during the journey by handing out Thomas stickers & games. Then we pulled back into the station, had lunch in the buffet car before the Fat Controller took everyone into the yard.  Here Thomas and his friends got up to their usual tricks such as Thomas discovered fish in his boiler.  The children had to help fill Thomas up with water and the naughty trucks got up to all kinds of mischief.

It was a truly amazing day and without Mr Woolvett and all the volunteers at Spa Valley Railway this day would not have happened. If you would like to find out more about the railway then click here to visit the Spa Valley Railway website.
