Product Features : Fantastic new and original Thomas train set | Amazing 'real' steam action | Totally safe for children - just add water | Funnel glows red for added effect | Thomas train has a special shiny metallic coat | Battery operated train moves around track | Thomas train makes real steam engine sounds | Requires 3 x AA batteries (not included) | Manufacturers recommended age 3+ 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.

Steam Along Thomas Set

A special edition set to celebrate Thomas and Friends 60th Anniversary and to bring excitement of real steam trains to children. Ever imagined a world of steam trains at your fingertips? Well imagine no more – as this fabulous new steam train set is finally here from Tomy. "

Designed for children aged 3+, this train is totally safe and easy to use. Simply place a battery into Thomas, fill his funnel with water and turn him on. Then watch in wonder as Thomas moves around the track with real steam chuffing out of his funnel! Amazing!

Thomas is one of the world’s favourite children’s characters, and this is the 60th year since his creation back in 1945. This limited edition set has been years in the making and is a wonderful celebration set to mark Thomas’ birthday. Thomas has a bright metallic coat for his Anniversary celebrations too!

[LEFT]The track is easy to set up (just follow the simple instructions in the pack, or create your own track layout) and Thomas can either be battery operated or he can be switched off and pushed around the track by hand. Thomas even works off track on any flat surface
This train set works in conjunction with Tomy’s Thomas Motor Road and Rail system. With over 22 Thomas trains to collect and many road and rail accessories available, children can collect them all to create their own Thomas adventures and stories. Using their imagination they can create an Island of Sodor in their own home! Many of these accessories are available on Amazon – just search the Tomy store for ‘Thomas Motor Road and Rail’.

Important – only use de-ionised water with this product to prevent lime scale damage. Adult assistance is essential when filling/re-filling.
Thanks for this! This was one of items I won't be getting from Hamleys so very pleased with this.
Glad to know that Mikzos :santa:
Thanks for this edi, looks like a great set!
Got this last year for my son
The only trouble with it is that after about 1 hour you have to refill thomas with water (Which doesn't take too long) gets a bit boring after playing with it for 7 hours.
Wife thought I bought it for my son, which I did, its just that I wanted to make sure it worked properly :whistling:
