Lionel produces a range of Thomas & Friends models in O scale. The company previously manufactured Thomas and James models in G gauge, but dropped this line in 2001. As of 2013, all the O Scale engines are powered by the LionChief Remote, and as of 2018, all of the engines have gained CGI-style faces, with the exceptions of 'Arry and Bert.

Trivia

  • Most rolling stock except the Troublesome Trucks, Annie, and Clarabel are repainted American rolling stock.
  • Mavis was originally going to be produced for the Lionel range, but she was replaced by Diesel.
  • The Lionchief Thomas has the same whistle as Lionel's G Gauge engines, however this will be fixed in the 2019 model.
  • Unlike the normal Thomas, the Lionchief Thomas does not have moving eyes.
  • When the Thomas Christmas set was released, the remote was not the same as the one shown in commercials for the set, which was moulded in holiday colours. In the released set, the remote was the same as the first R/C Thomas release but with snowflake patterns printed on it.
  • The Sodor Crane Car and Work Caboose would have had the same colour scheme as Rocky, but they also have the markings of the Sodor Steamworks.
  • Until 2018, Thomas was the only O Scale engine to not be updated with a CGI-style face.
  • As of 2019, all engines will be equipped with Bluetooth and will have voice clips, music clips from both the modern and classic eras, and their proper whistles and horns.
  • 'Arry and Bert's faces on their promo are 2D rather than the casted faces Lionel has made for them.
  • In the prototype picture of the Island of Sodor Set, Harold's ERTL model is used.
  • The Thomas O Scale model was used for the cover photo of Bachmann's 2002 catalog.
  • The Thomas G Scale model was featured in the Toy Train Christmas Memories DVD operated by Tom Voltaggio.
  • Diesel's prototype image in a 2007 catalogue was his sixth series model.
