Thomas and friends Wooden Railway is a Wooden Moel Railway system created by Learning Curve.

Product History, Design and MakeEdit

Learning Curve was founded by John W. Lee 1993 in Chicago. In 2003 the company was aquired by "Racing Champions ERTL" renamed in the same year to "RC2". Learning Curve introduced some new designs for the track surface of wooden toys railways, such as the "clickety-clack" rails patented in 1995 and the newer tracks with a relief to supply better trancation for the battery powered engines pantented in 2003. They also introduced a road track that used the same gauge as the railway tracks. The original models were constructed mainly from painted wood with metal used in the coupling magnets and axles and plastic wheels and faces. These models were relatively primitive, with simple wooden stubs for the funnel and the dome and details such as windows, whistles and bufferbeams omitted. In the late 1990s and the early 2000s, the models were upgrated. The wooden funnel and smokebox were replaced with a seprate plastic smokebox were replaced with a more relistic funnel. The tender engines recived an additional upgrate of a modeled plastic coal. These improved designs were manufactured untill 2002, when they replaced with a third genration of design, which included new and more deailed faces. Another update came in 2011 in the form of new faces to coincide with the recent CGI switchover.
