2. The Track Layout Packs
Wooden toy trains are the ones that run on a wooden track system with grooves to guide the wheels of the rolling stock. While the trains, tracks and scenery accessories are mainly made of wood, the cars and engines connect to each other using metal hooks or small magnets, also some use plastic wheels mounted on metal axles. There are some trains that are made to resemble fictional, anthropomorphical and prototypical railroad equipment. Toy train is not something that has come up all of a sudden, in fact the history of toy train goes back to 1936, when Marshal H. Larrabee II founded the Skaneateles Handicrafters. The company used to make wooden tracks and trains which were mostly made from maple wood. After that in 1956 playskool took over the sales of the Skaneateles Handicrafters and since then toy railway set business has never looked back. The reason for this business lasting so long is that trains are something we see in our everyday lives and often admire the path of a train and the way a train is driven. The toy trains fulfill this aspiration in most of our lives of being the guiding in charge of the train, where it is we, who decide where the train would lead to and which path it would follow. Coming to the history of Thomas the Tank, Thomas the Tank Engine being a fictional steam locomotive in The Railway Series books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher. He eventually became the most popular character in the series, and also the television spin-off series, Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. Thomas is a tank engine, which has its body painted blue with red lining, and displays the running number one. All of the locomotives in The Railway Series were based on mostly prototypical engines. Speaking of designs, Thomas has origins in the E2 Class designed by Lawson Billinton in 1913.
