A life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine was spotted in the mountains of Japan, west of Tokyo and near the city of Shimada in Shizuoka prefecture. The steam engine replica belongs to the Oigawa Railway. The company is famous for its old-fashioned steam locomotives which carry passengers through isolated spots in the surrounding area, populated by mountains and hills, to one of the many hot spring resorts.

Thomas will be making journeys throughout the month of July. Unfortunately tickets have already sold out but may be available through secondary marketplaces. People can still catch a glimpse of Thomas by visiting sections along the Oigawa Railway in July.
