TrackMaster is a battery-operated toy system manufactured by Fisher-Price, Mattel in the US. The range was launched in 2007 after previous owners, TOMY, lost their license to HiT Toy Company to make the Motor Road and Rail range. However, TOMY did not sell the range in the UK up until 2010. In 2010, Fisher Price picked up HiT Toys' license. The engines run on special plastic tan track and until 2010, the roadway vehicles ran on a special grey road. In 2014, The range was re-designed. Engines are faster and run on new grey track. There are special track adapters to connect the new-style track to the old-style track. They can also climb up steeper inclines.

Trivia

  • Flip-face models of Gordon and Percy were seen on the back of some TrackMaster boxes, but were never released.
  • The Slippy Sodor Thomas' funnel is simply a regular funnel painted red.
  • Even though they share the same engine class, Charlie has a new mold instead of reusing Billy's.
  • Since 2010, the buffers in some sets have been depicted as a brick wall.
  • TrackMaster track was used twice to break the world record for the longest toy train set. The first was at the Thomas Land Theme Park in the UK in 2008 and later at The Workshops Rail Museum in Australia in 2010.
  • Some of the newer tender engines have their battery compartments as part of their motors, contained within the engine boiler so as to avoid having a wire that could break between the two parts of the engine. As of 2014, because all of the engines have the same chassis, this change has been made to every engine.
  • Since 2012, the engines have had holes in their wheels so that they can be held into the packaging by plastic sticks for security purposes. As of 2014, they still have these holes, but the sticks are only utilised with Greatest Moments packs.
  • Nelson's alloys and front beam are painted black instead of red.
  • Harvey and Mighty Mac are unpowered.  A powered coach (a works unit coach for Harvey and a cream and green coach for Mighty Mac) is used to push them. This is because Harvey's crane takes up too much space to house a battery, as does Mighty Mac's end-swapping function. These engines and their respective coaches have special couplers to make them easier to push.
  • Stephen's prototype showed him with two lamps and a smoother bufferbeam.
  • Connor and Caitlin's coaches are closed vans with stickers on the sides.
  • Bash and Dash's prototypes show moss on their cabs.
  • The truck in the Castle Quest set does not have a rear coupler and is abnormally tall.
  • Bash's prototype has a Skarloey Railway blue coach and a brown truck.
  • In 2014, the engines were redesigned, with a new, less powerful motor, a longer wheelbase, unpainted buffers, silver siderods and couplers, printed details, and interchangeable chassis.
  • On Edward's 2014 redesigned model, his siderods connect between the rear driver and the rear pilot wheel which makes him look like a 2-6-0, rather than between the driving wheels as in his previous models as a 4-4-0.
  • Edward's 2014 model's pilot wheels are moulded into his running board, and the prototype of the model shows the wheels unpainted. This was fixed for the final release.
  • The UK release of the Avalanche Escape set is missing a few risers, a burst-through door, the truck, the fossil, and the Scrap Monster. As a result, the track configuration is different.
  • Emily's 2014 model inaccurately depicts her as an 0-6-0 instead of a 4-2-2.
