Wooden Railway is a Thomas & Friends merchandise line that consists of wooden models, tracks and accessories and is a model railway system created by Learning Curve, in 1992. Learning Curve held the rights until 2011, until the range was acquired by TOMY, who owned the rights to Wooden Railway in 2012. Since 2013, the Wooden Railway range has been produced by Fisher-Price. It is one of the longest-running Thomas & Friends merchandise lines. Wooden Railway can work alongside BRIO trains due to using a nearly-identical track system.

Product History, Design and Make

The Wooden Railway merchandise line for the Thomas & Friends franchise was created by Learning Curve in 1992. It is unknown whether they were officially released in that same year or in 1993. These original models were primarily constructed with painted wood, along with metal used in the coupling magnets and axles and plastic for the wheels and faces. These models were relatively simple, with simple wooden stubs for the funnel and dome, while details such as windows, whistles, and buffer beams were omitted.

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, the models were upgraded. The wooden funnel and smokebox were replaced with a separate plastic smokebox with a more realistic funnel. The tender engines received an additional upgrade, with a moulded plastic coal pile for their tenders.

These improved designs were manufactured until 2002, when they were replaced with a third generation of design, which included new and more detailed faces. 2011 saw another slight re-design in the form of new faces to co-incide with the recent CGI switchover.

In late 2011, TOMY bought Learning Curve and as such acquired the rights to the Wooden Railway line. They sold the products previously planned to be released by Learning Curve for early 2012. The products due to be released in late 2012 co-inciding with the special Blue Mountain Mystery were cancelled because Learning Curve had only developed the computer generated prototypes, before they were acquired by TOMY. These cancelled releases with the new CGI style models were re-constructed by TOMY and sold under their name. TOMY held the licensing until the end of 2012.

Since 2013, Fisher-Price began manufacturing and distributing the Wooden Railway merchandise line and this change introduced another re-design. This upgrade is currently being used for all of the Wooden Railway merchandise line. All the engines, rolling stock and vehicles were re-constructed with more paint detailing, current CGI styled faces as well as curved edges to prevent edge-wear and wood-break. All models with multiple bogies had their chassis made of plastic and other slight plastic incorporations were utilised to cut down production costs. Fisher-Price still produces the Wooden Railway line and their current designs are being used presently. The Wooden Railway merchandise range has become one of Thomas & Friends' longest-running merchandise lines.

Yearbooks

ThomasYearbookcovervolumeVII

Volume VII Note: Tiger Moth's propeller differs from the production model, suggesting the one seen here was a prototype

WoodenRailwayYearbookvolumeVIIcover

From the introduction of the Wooden Railway system, Learning Curve, Tomy, and Mattel have made yearbooks to feature their items. The items would be shown with standard "mugshots" for engines and cars, while sets would be shown assembled. The cover would also feature the new items on it with Thomas usually being in the foreground.


Trivia

  • The prototype for Skarloey used Percy's face.
  • The 2004 Rheneas model had white wheels and an inaccurate carmine livery.
