There he is,” Brock yells as he points to the 17-ton, 25-foot-long blue engine replica with his giant smiley face. Wearing a giant Thomas and Friends backpack and khaki Thomas overalls, he pumps a fist up and down imitating the train whistle he hears. “Woo woo. Woo woo,” he says. “Hi Thomas.” Brock’s mom, Julie Baldridge, said he was excited to get a chance to see Thomas in person. “He’s a big fan,” she said.
