DINOSAUR TRAIN™
CELEBRATES TRAINS AND NATIONAL TRAIN DAY AT THE LOS ANGELES LIVE STEAMERS RAILROAD MUSEUM
FOR AN AFTERNOON OF DINOSAUR TRAIN FUN

The Jim Henson Company and PBS SoCal Host
Afternoon of Activities and Fun on May 7, 2011



“Dinosaur Train” is celebrating America’s love of trains with special programming and activities throughout the month of May. To kick off, the award-winning and critically acclaimed animated preschool series from The Jim Henson Company, will debut an all new episode on May 6 on PBS KIDS ® (please check local listings). And, in honor of National Train Day, The Jim Henson Company and PBS SoCal will host a celebration with partners, sponsors, supporters and media friends of the critically-acclaimed animated series at the Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum on Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 2:00 to 4:30pm. The exclusive event was announced today by Lisa Henson, CEO, The Jim Henson Company, and Mel Rogers, President and CEO of PBS SoCal.

“The Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum is such a fun and special location, created by train enthusiasts to educate people on railroad history, we thought it would be the ideal place for fans of ‘Dinosaur Train’ to celebrate this special day,” said Henson. “Our young ‘Dinosaur Train’ fans--Junior Conductors--will be thrilled with the trains, the exhibits and all of the engaging activities we’re planning in honor of National Train Day.”

“With our recent expansion and re-branding, this celebration with ‘Dinosaur Train’ creates a wonderful opportunity for us to thank our sponsors, supporters and the media,” added Rogers. “It also gives us another platform from which to reiterate our commitment to serving the viewers of Southern California with quality PBS and local programming.”

Guests at the “Dinosaur Train” celebration will be treated to rides on the beautifully built and maintained 7½" gauge model trains that travel over two miles of track.* They’ll also meet the museum’s train enthusiasts who will be on hand to answer questions and provide plenty of train facts.

Guests will also be able to get their picture taken with “Buddy,” the dinosaur and participate in a special singalong with Craig Bartlett, creator of “Dinosaur Train.” Bartlett will perform such popular songs as the “Dinosaur Train” Opening Theme Song, I Love Trains, and Dinosaurs A to Z.

Several “Dinosaur Train” brand partners will also be participating in the event. At the Random House Reading Corner, Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company, and Joe Purdy, the series story editor, and known to fans as Mr. Disclaimer, will read one of the many “Dinosaur Train” books published by Random House; and the MEGABrands Play Corner will feature the all-new construction toy sets based on “Dinosaur Train.” There will also be a Junior Conductor Craft Area with activity sheets, coloring pages and other interactive offerings for young attendees.

*IMPORTANT: Guests must RSVP to attend the event. We will not be able to accommodate guests who are not on our RSVP list. Also, please note that there will be media at this event, and guests will be asked to sign a publicity waiver upon arrival.

For that reason, only guests who are at least 34” in height and weigh less than 350 lbs. will be allowed to ride the trains. Train enthusiasts who do not meet these requirements are welcome to attend the event, but will not be permitted to ride the trains.
