“Thomas the Tank Engine” is a character created by the Rev. W. Awdry in The Railway Series of children’s books, first published in the U.K. in 1945. In 1984 a television series called Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends was made, adding to the popularity of the characters. It was first broadcast in the United States in 1989. John W. Lee founded the company “Learning Curve Toys” in November 1992 with a wooden railway system called “Thomas & Friends” based on the Thomas the Tank Engine characters. This made the wooden toy trains even more popular than before. Learning Curve introduced some new designs for the track surface, such as the “Clickety Clack” rails patented 1995 and the newer tracks in 2003 with a relief to supply better traction grip for battery powered four wheel drive trains patented in 1998.

Just purchased this table as a Christmas gift. My almost-18-month-old is so engaged with the store display that we knew Santa would be bringing one this year.When purchasing, box was inside of another box (i.e. brown shipping box) so I couldn’t see any pictures of “what’s included.” The young kid at the store advised me that everything was included, which is NOT true– no trains, tracks or extras in this set– you will need to purchase everything separately if you want the actual tracks as opposed to just the pictures on the table. Apparently there is another table– an Imaginarium Train Set– that does come with everything, but it is not specific to Thomas and Friends.I returned to the store to buy the extras and I was overwhelmed by the options. They are pricey, but what was more frustrating was just not knowing which ones to get. You can get figure-8 starter sets, expansion sets, bridge pieces, “destination” items such as a mine quarry, station, etc., and of course each of the engines. Unfortunately there is no list of what you need to get in order to re-create the floor model. Given that this is for Christmas, I haven’t put this together yet, but ended up getting about 5 “destinations” (including Tidmouth Sheds and Gold Mine Mountain which are a bit pricey for what they are), as well as a starter figure-8 track, expansion set, and some other small “add-ons” that come with a few track pieces. According to the sales guy that should be a sufficient start. One side of this table apparently has grooves pre-set for a track, but you don’t get any recommended “sets” to buy to fit into those those grooves. You just have to use your own creativity and buy different pieces. I’ll try to provide additional feedback with recommendations once we actually put the set together.Apparently the “Imaginarium” extra tracks also work on this table, but they do look slightly different, so if you don’t mind mixing and matching you could save quite a bit of money. I’m a little obsessive 🙂 and wanted all the pieces to match, so I got suckered into spending more. In summary– Tracks and Trains not included. Recommendations for sets that fit onto table not included. Imaginarium train table is all inclusive and significantly less expensive if you aren’t set on getting “Thomas.”Imaginarium tracks fit onto this table if you don’t care about mismatched pieces.Hope you find this helpful! If you are getting Thomas and want all of the bells and whistles, be aware up front that you are making a small investment! Take advantage of the sales when you can!

If you’d like to welcome the little blue tank engine into your home, you have two choices: buy Thomas Wooden Railway sets and Thomas trains, or buy non-Thomas sets and add Thomas trains to them. Thomas brand track is by far my favorite. The quality is even better than Brio, and the railroad tie detail looks fantastic in person. While the buildings and trains are featuring more plastic than ever, I still feel — or, perhaps, hope — this is a high quality brand, and nothing can replace the way that having the trains be talking, feeling characters vastly increases the possibilities for valuable pretend play.

Heros (He+ros), the company of Hermann Rossberg of Lam in the Bavarian Forest near to the border of Bohemia, influenced train design in the Blumenau tradition. He too started a line of wooden trains in 1968 to the same gauge, using bright colors in his train designs. In the 1970s the company experimented with plastic tracks based on the peg and hole design of the wooden tracks, but soon returned to normal wooden tracks. In 2010 the company had to be sold to the Simba-Dickie-Group. The train lines where dropped and the focus shifted to wooden toy blocks and the constructor toy range while Eichhorn became the only supplier of toy trains on a wooden track system within the Simba-Dickie-Group.

My four year old son absolutely LOVES trains. So I’ve made Thomas and all his Friends, as well as, Chuggington a welcome place in our home. While Thomas and Brio set the standard, it was nice to learn about affordable alternatives. I have Thomas trains, but no track or destinations. I have a railroad crossing piece by Brio, and am looking at the more interactive accessory sets, like the harbor and construction sets. I prefer the sets without the little people. Melissa and Doug makes a very good quality track, and while the freight cars aren’t interchangeable, I found the red and blue engines, coal tenders, and coach cars a great substitute for James and Edward, which we don’t have yet. We have the Figure 8 and 130 piece sets from M&D, and they set the bar for me so far. The roundhouse, cranes and bridges really filled out the “Island of Sodor.” Imaginarium also makes a good track, and we like the trains and freight cars. We have the Switches and Crossings and the Deluxe expansion packs, as well as the Harbor set, with a crane, truck, and boat. I am wanting to add the Timber Spiral set, mainly for the truck and freight cars, the added destination and the spiral support pieces. My only complaint with the Imaginarium playsets, is the reliance on the short curve pieces, which some Thomas engines and the Chuggington engines have difficulty navigating. I got my Lil Engineer a Koko, Wilson, and the Brewster with the Digger car. Those are the only Chuggington pieces he has. They are too tall to fit under the standard bridges. But, he can play Chuggington when he wants. I just purchased a used Kidkraft set off of Craigslist, and the only positive thing I liked were the trees. Plastic, but in two pieces, and more realistic looking than any other brand. The signs, cars, planes, and mountain tunnel will do. Otherwise, I am utterly disappointed. The spiral is all one-piece and plastic, and no train fits on it, with the track support pieces lowered in place. I would like to recommend the . Especially check out the Track and the Layout Planning sections for info on track measurements, and train table reommendations. Happy Chugging!
