Thomas & Friends Trackmaster Cable Bridge Set
Inspired by the Thomas & Friends DVD, Journey Beyond Sodor, the Thomas & Friends Trackmaster Cable Bridge Set($49.99) features a Thomas motorized toy train that helps kids relive the most thrilling moments from the movie.
Thomas needs to make a daring escape from the Steelworks. The TrackMaster Cable Bridge Set from Fisher-Price lets kids send motorized Thomas up toward the moss-covered ledge, and just when it looks like he can’t go any further, the cables drop to provide a safe crossing!
But Thomas isn’t free from danger yet. After navigating the cable bridge, he enters the Steelworks shack, where a large machine cog falls into his cargo car. He speeds forward, but there’s a gap in the tracks! It looks like Thomas will tumble over the edge … until, at the final moment, a hill shoots out from beneath the shack, offering Thomas a safe route down.
The journey continues as the No. 1 blue engine speeds around a curve, and a machine arm snatches the cog from his cargo car, then drops it in the cargo holder.
Complete Thomas & Friends train set includes motorized Thomas, cargo car, two cargo pieces, and full track layout with cable bridge crossing, Steelworks shack, and cargo grabber/holder Connect to other TrackMaster train sets and expansion packs (sold separately) to create a bigger, more exciting motorized railway.
