He actually talked about the set it came in starting at the 26:11 mark in this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6Lv7yzmCAv...l&index=13

It even has a green Clarabel and ... Clarabel

Aliexpress has the blue version of it.  I acquired a knockoff version.  Lets just say you don't want young kids to play with them.  the rolling stocks fall apart relatively easily.

I do like a couple things on this knockoff but because I don't have it in hand to feel the quality I am not sure it would serve the purpose.

I do like those long side rods that are like some of the older Tomy/Trackmaster type and that middle wheel. Both these could serve as neat parts for customs. Also the motor which, by the way, is simplistic in its gearing and because of that, the engine is not free wheeling (Revolution) looks to be strong and might serve to be a good replacement if needed for our Tomy/Trackmaster engines.

These parts might prove valuable but only if this set is super cheap like most of the Chinese knockoffs are.

@Super I agree! Also I think Leo said it was about 20 dollars in that video

Yes he did say $18 but in Australian Dollars (less than $14usd) right? So if there was any shipping costs would put it in the not worth it for parts in my estimation.

you may able to score one at a small toy store.  That's how I found a Thomas knockoff set.  The engines are too high to clear the trackmaster tunnels.  The motor design shouldn't be compatible to trackmaster.

I created a page dedicated to the knockoffs.

Nice page!

I have a gordon from this lineup, the plastic quality isn't great as the toy broke with rough play at a very young age. Several parts snapped easily and the tender has a huge crack in it. I've got no idea where gordon is and the last i remember he was in pieces.

Would not recommend using these or their parts.

Sorry, but this truck is not fake. It was made for (one of two versions of) the TrackMaster Castle Quest/Quest for the Crown set. They made it taller than a typical truck so it can reach the set's interactive mechanisms.

@Leyland
Curious about that 'Thomas Cartoon Train Set'. Is that something bought Online or from a Canadian brick and mortar store?

@DalaGStanator thank you.  the flickr serve is currently down.  I will remove the pic from the knock off gallery page.  I am surprise it is genuine given there is no labels on the bottom of the train except "made in china" label on the chassis and not to mention no coupling in the rear of the rolling stock.

@super yes i got it from a Canadian brick and mortar store.  It costed me $10 Canadian dollars.  I found this set at 2 other brick and mortar stores located inside 2 strip malls.  They are smaller than the trackmaster trains and bigger than take along.  Major chain will not carry them for obvious reason..
