A few years back, Henrietta was considered to be the rarest wooden engine in America. I'm just thankful that they're selling her at all.
Thats rather odd in my case. I went to a store a few years back and bought a Thomas tape, and a Wooden train came with it. The train turned out to be Henrietta! I was so amazed that they'd stick a rare character like Henrietta in a $10 video set!
Also, I bought a Oliver (old version) at a shop a few years back. The wheels are black and he is dated 2001 on the wheels. (For those who are talking about Oliver's wheel colours ).
There are no regular freight cars in the line anymore. I mean, what happened to the TT's, Henry's Log Car, Fuel and Tar, Milk, and the others.
Now the only cars in the range are Bouncing Troublesome Trucks, the Sodorline Caboose, and a few ohers. The rest all are, "animated".
I just miss the "Good" freight cars that didn't make sounds or have complicated features. You know what I mean?
Loco, I couldn't agree more with you. I still have an original troublesome truck and brown breakvan. They were the best cars ever made in my opinion. I have two pairs of tar and fuel cars and a couple of log cars too.
I strongly dislike the new cars with all of the gimmicky features. Who needs a ice delievery car or a gold prospecter's car? The zoo and aquarium cars are the worst.
I actually like the giggling troublesome trucks, though. I bought a pair of them. The giggling is actually pretty cool (it's the season 2 giggle). It's a lot less annoying then you'd think.
I know that the milk tanker is retiring this year and the original caboose might be too. At least we have the new giggling trucks- the best trucks you can buy now for the LC system.
Has anyone noticed that, this year, besides Happy Birthday Thomas and the Collector's 3 pack, every vehicle released this year is actually from the show?
Got the Troublesome Trucks yesterday. They're the best freight cars LC has released in a looooooong time. The faces are really good. My only complaint is that the laugh the trucks make is too short, in my opinion.
Due to extreme circumstances I have removed all of my Thomas-related pictures from my Majhost account. Sorry.
Well, you got to understand that they are trying to boost sales by giving them a feature... Like one person would go to the old SC Ruffey and say: well, thats alot for a truck that doesn't even do anything. While for the new SC Ruffey would be said: WOW! A load! Thats better!
I was reffering to the gaudy cars like the gold prospector's cars or the Recycling cars. They are nice loonking, but freight cars like Scruffy and the others are gone and we need them back.
I do like the new Scruffy. I think the face should have been in the center like the Old one. I think the new Toad, Oliver, and the TT's are better than the orginal ones. Improvemnets on old friends are nice, but ones like the Foghorn Cars and the Gold Prospector cars are just plain bad.
I mean, the only "Real" freight cars in the line are the Sodor Line Caboose, the TT's, Toad, Scruffy, and the cars that come in the 3 Beginner's sets and the furniture car from the Edward the Great set.
P:S: The only reason I bought the three beginner sets was beacuse of the rollin stock and track. I'd like to get the Edward the Great set this year because almost all of the pieces in the set are exclusive.

zeldatheswordsm: Railway modelling hot take: Daylight under the boiler is overrated in OO, and it might be best to glue acetate shielding behind it on locos that have it to mitigate dust inflow. Especially locos where the body is actually screwed to the chassis.
