How about a long train trip with the family this weekend — traveling into prehistoric adventures with a young Tyrannosaurus rex and his friends? 

If that sounds good, hop on board the 59-hour Dinosaur Train ride. The marathon of episodes from the Jim Henson-produced animated children’s series departs tonight at 7 pm ET on PBS Kids, available online or over the air.

You can get on and off any time through 6 am Monday, August 26. Admission is free.

The trip’s itinerary is huge: Since debuting on PBS 10 years ago this Labor Day, Dinosaur Train has broadcast 89 episodes over four seasons.

The marathon leads into a fifth season of Dinosaur Train debuting Monday. Five episodes will air on PBS stations (check local listings for times) and the PBS Kids video app. The PBS Kids 24/7 channel will run one episode per day through Friday at 4:30 pm. Another five episodes will premiere later.

To stream PBS Kids, go to pbskids.org/video/livetv or use the PBS Kids video app. To watch PBS Kids over the air with an antenna, visit RabbitEars.info for your local channel number.
