This article is about the 2022 Wooden Railway range. You may be looking for the original Wooden Railway range.

Wooden Railway is a merchandise range of Thomas & Friends merchandise consisting of wooden engines, rolling stock, track and accessories.

The range was created to replace Wood after its discontinuation and takes the name of the line Wood originally replaced, Wooden Railway. In addition to the name, the range features a return to the original track system - which is compatible with other wooden railway systems such as Brio - as well as many of the features cut from the Wood line making a comeback, such as inserted domes and swiveling bogies for the larger engines. Unlike its predecessors, the mouths are now printed on, allowing for a variety of facial expressions.

The range was originally scheduled to release at the end of 2021. However, due to global supply chain issues, the release dates were pushed back February 2022, before being delayed again until March.

Trivia

  • Thomas, Gordon, James, Percy, and Emily feature rivets and handrails, like with their most recent upgrades in the Thomas and Friends show (Thomas, Gordon, and Emily also gain additional ones). Additionally, Edward, Henry, Toby, and Diesel gained them, despite their television series designs lacking them.
  • The line is among the first to not feature all of the engines with their default smiling faces.
  • Being one of the most detailed iterations of the Wooden Railway line, one of the new features for some of the steam engines is their firebox glow reflected in their cab windows and doorways.
  • Much like the Take Along and original Take-n-Play range, some of the models have altered wheel arrangements due to size constraints. As a result, Nia is depicted as a 2-6-0 much like her All Engines Go redesign, while Gordon, Hiro and Rebecca are depicted as 4-6-0s.
  • A flipped version of the sixth illustration in the story Edward and Gordon from the C. Reginald Dalby edition of The Three Railway Engines is featured as a painting on the wall next to the baggage drop in the Knapford Station set.
  • Unlike the contemporary appearances of the Push Along and Motorized ranges, the 2022 Wooden Railway range is primarily based on the aesthetics of the original Thomas & Friends series, rather than the recent All Engines Go reboot. As such, with the exceptions of Carly and All Engines Go-exclusive characters such as Kana and Sandy, the toys are primarily based on the original series designs.
  • The Dream Big tour Thomas features different versions that have different wheel colour arrangments.
