Benjamin Blanco, clad in a Thomas the Tank Engine T-shirt, has some fun with his father, Jerry, as they ride Thomas the Tank Engine in Heber City on Thursday. Benjamin, who has suffered from a brain tumor, was among patients from Primary Children's Medical Center and more than 200 children from various area schools who turned out to welcome the full-size Thomas the Tank Engine as he rolled into Heber City as part of the Day Out With Thomas: The Hero of the Rail Tour, which stops in 45 North American cities. The tour began in March and is expected to welcome more than 1 million passengers by the time it ends in December.
