If it is a factory error there would have to have been three painting errors, Blue instead of green, yellow instead of white and a painted roof which isn't on the green Mac coach. I have seen this version before but I think only in the Japan auction Lots. What makes this so much more interesting than just the colors is that it is a motorized coach meant to push a non-powered engine which is evident by bulky hooked coupling which should limit the choices of what it came with....Chuggington? Another point that may add to the detective work is that the engine is most likely not tendered since pushing both a tender car and an engine might prove to be problematic. So maybe we narrow it down to diesels or tank engines? Also might there have been a piece of equipment this pushed like a crane car or something?

Too old for Chuggington, also,TOMY got the brand in 2012, and this is dated 2005.

Funny Super I just came on because I realized the painted roof makes it impossible for it to be a mistake!!
Lol...and yes too old for Chuggington I believe, so where did it come from? Lol

Okay it might not be a factory error. You guys make it difficult for yourselves though. The owner of the item comes from the US and can't remember what it came with. It can only be a Motor Road and Rail item or a TrackMaster item from 2007 as some brand new items were released straightaway into TrackMaster packs with the old licensing information underneath. It could be more likely from a release of Mighty Mac or Fearless Freddie. Sometimes we've seen long period releases with minute changes in contents that pass most of us by.

Also the year markings underneath aren't always an indication of age but more a date of when the design was first patented or used. A very interesting item for sure.

[Image: detective-smiley-emoticon.gif] Love the detective work, this is fun.

So we can eliminate it coming with Freddie because this variant is powered and I don't think any Freddie release was not powered himself...right?

All versions of Freddie ever released have had the motor in the engine. A motorized, removable tender, coach or truck would never be designed for an engine that is self-contained (Edward, Henry, Gordon and James had permanent tenders for the batteries, but the motors were in the engines themselves).

Finds like these seem to bring about a natural process of discovery...like the front hook Splatter...
It was unknown, then found...
One thing leads to another, and the next thing you know, there's a D10 Lady Chase set!!
I am leaning towards yet another unknown set still yet to be discovered at this point?
This is such an exciting endless joy of a hobby!!SmileThe adventure NEVER seem to ever stop on this treasure hunt of trains!!Big Grin
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

Even if we don't solve the mystery, at least we have an accurate blue SR coach!
