Another 60th Anniversary Thomas???
#1
Hi guys,
I was just looking at the Trackmaster wiki and I came across this:
[Image: latest?cb=20200325220520]
[Image: latest?cb=20200325220531]

It's titled "60th Anniversary Campaign Thomas"
I never knew this existed as I thought the only 60th anniversary Plarail Thomas there was was this one:

[Image: plarail-tomy-trackmaster-60th_1_d9d60834...efce75.jpg][Image: latest?cb=20170812133814]
I find it fascinating that I've never heard or seen anything to do about this train and would love to learn more. The word "campaign" in its title leads me to believe that maybe it was a prize in one of those campaign of the lucky draws, like how the gold thomas was won. If anyone has any information to share about it that would greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I love that individual blue box, looks vintage and one I don't recall seeing before. Now I too am curious. Wonder why they didn't put a 60th anniversary decal on it so it didn't look like all the other Thomas's.

Yeah, it's quite distinctive. The only thing that distinguishes it from other plarail thomas' is the flags across the side from him. Other then that i think its the exact same as other trains

Isn't there a couple other Thomas's that have flags along the sides or maybe they were just banners?

There are, but they aren't as simple as this, and most of them are trackmaster releases, not plarail

Sorry Muddy but from what i see, the carnival delivery set has a different flag pattern to this plarail one. And this is a plarail thomas so it'll have a different shape and different details to this one too. It might be another train that contributes to the never ending quest of "collecting them all" Dodgy Undecided

Is it also possible that the Plarail one has a white boiler plate (see the white line) and the (I forget the proper name) black hub is not red like the Trackmaster one.

Yes it does, I searched up on google images this "プラレール トーマス 60" which just translates to Plarail Thomas 60, and I found another photo which proves you're point.

Yep I'm almost certain that this is a campaign of the lucky draw prize. The word キャンペーン on the box translates to 'campaign.' And i've translated the whole box so the name of it is "60th anniversary campaign thomas the tank engine." Exactly what the wikia says it is!

Hmmm, either Muddy already has one or he is busy searching for one to add to his collection. Big Grin

Yes Super...I am searching!
My memory is telling me that I saw many of these come up a few years ago, but I didn’t recognize them for what they were.
I thought that they were single boxes of the metallic Thomas, and I always through that it was weird that Tomy would sell a single replacement engine for their 60th anniversary set.
I guess I should have investigated the box art more carefully.
Darny darn darn!
Play nice & have fun!!Smile
