Nakayoshi (Japanese: なかよしトーマス) is a Thomas and Friends plastic rail system made by Bandai. The range started in 1995 with waves of eight to ten items, typically an engine, rolling stock, and track piece, each with candy. The original series first ran to 2003, where all items received updated designs and ran to 2006, then a new series was made in 2008 which comprised of re-releases. In 2010, the range was relaunched with fewer items, playmats of track, and without candy.
