Amazon.co.uk Review : This is a brand new set which has been launched to commemorate Thomass 60th Birthday. The main attraction of this set is that Thomas appears to be a real steam engine as steam appears from his funnel as he makes authentic whistling noises. The steam is cold water steam and is 100% safe for children. They can even fill up the boiler by themselves, although adult supervision is recommended! I am not sure how this is produced, but even as an adult it is amazing watching the steam appear as Thomas puffs round the track. I would suggest buying a large bottle of de-ionised water (from any garage or hardware store at about £1) as you and your child will keep wanting to refill Thomas boiler again and again! A full boiler will last Thomas approximately 25 circuits.
The sheer magic of seeing Thomas steaming along as in the shows will enthrall and captivate your children of all ages. This is a must for any Thomas fan, even if you have a lot of the Tomy Motor Road and Rail already, as this is something quite special. Thomas also has a fantastic metallic blue coat and is not the run of the mill one that you get with all the other sets.
The set itself contains one inner loop and an outer loop, enabling your child to make full use of the points to switch tracks. There is also a tunnel and a large suspension bridge to add to the interest.
