Thomas Shipwreck Rails 1

We do actually own one other Thomas Trackmaster Set of which we own another Thomas Train and I must admit we really do like the additional mud splat detailing of the newest Thomas. Also this Thomas features the bobbly wheels which help him climb the steep ramps of the Trackmaster Train Sets and has the on/off switch at the top of this cab.

The detailing of this toy train set really is good, you get the graphics of the outside of the shipwreck, cobbles of the rock face where the ship was found in the film and also the pirate flag.

When Thomas is riding the track he will travel up the ramp and then take a very swift decline on the 360° spiral twisting track which is really thrilling to watch. This ramp works on a pulley system where the weight of Thomas will help the carriage decline and then the pulley will ensure the carriage returns to the top for the next time when Thomas goes round.

This new Thomas Shipwreck Rails Set has been an absolutely fantastic addition to our Trackmaster collection, the kids are loving this new track and watching Thomas tackle the 360° twisting track.
