I may have found some clue to the puzzle as to what this is. In the 2005 Plarail Catalogue it has a page that has the flags Thomas on it, the year this train was released.[Image: n331074808.2.jpg]You guys can clearly see that option "C" has this party flags thomas, and above it, the number of trains supposedly to be given away. 50. Only 50 of these Party flag thomas' were released, making it the second rarest thomas train ever! I look daily for this hoping to find it but after finding out only 50 were produced, this task may be no easy feat. If anyone maybe has a better photo of this page in the catalogue maybe we can see exactly what it says about the train.

You can also see it in ripley's catalogue collection

Fantastic bit of detective work Thara. So of the 3 items only 120 were made and given away. I am curious as to what each prize says and what they are exactly. I can figure out the 20 in option 'A' but what are the numbers 5, 4 & 1 mean?

I'm not sure, hopefully someone who knows Japanese can help us out with the translation. It also looks like the Plarail Thomas also came bundled with a Tomica Thomas with the same pattern. Maybe they were bundled together as 1 of the 50 prizes?

Thanks to Vio for his wonderful translation
we now know how many Celebration Thomas' were produced:

Prize A: Thomas Highland Passport + 2 Nights Stay In some kind of hotel. (1 pax, 2 days)
Prize B: Thomas Art Panel With Film Coating
Prize C: Original Thomas Product Set? (No idea what they mean.) / Tomica . Plarail Thomas

A total of 120 Carnival Thomas were available on the 60th anniversary.

Thanks for the Translation Thara and Vio. You truly have a rare one and now we have all been schooled on something most of us knew nothing about.

I believe that the First Prize in the Silver Thomas Drawing was also a weekend trip To Thomas Land or something like that.

No, I was only browsing and found out about it and wanted to learn more. I have a more attainable but still rare Blushing Thomas (1 of 360)

Darn , I thought you had scored this Undecided

I must be confusing this with your Blushing Thomas Thread. Not hard to confuse an old man these days.
