the Christmas holiday brought a few new engines to join thomas and crew here at our house. the sleek Big City Engine, Oliver (not pictured) and James all arrived right on schedule. the new train table is also necessary addition and provides a great, elevated play area to keep all the engines, tracks and buildings contained in one area. the wooden curves and loops of the tracks stay nice and orderly on the flat surface (better than the carpet) and the 18-20" table provides better access for playing and setting up tracks so you don't have to be down on the floor as much. i submitted my pics to the Thomas Fan Blog for viewing as well.
