Strasburg, PA – Thousands of children and rail-fans woke to the bad news that Thomas & Percy will not be appearing at the Strasburg Railroad on June 20th due to Thomas entering a court-mandated drug-rehabilitation program.
“I’d like to apologize to the Strasburg Railroad, the people of Lancaster County, and Thomas fans everywhere. We’re so sorry for having to cancel the appearance but Thomas is getting the help he needs.” stated Percy in a message from his Twitter account.
Sources from inside the train community report that Thomas’ drug problem is the “worst kept secret” and that Thomas injects up to 7 marijuanas per day. He recently hit rock-bottom when he sold his wheels to buy more marijuana.
All ticket holders will be reimbursed, please contact the box office. Percy will be making a few solo appearances, follow him @stanktank for updates.
