Thomas the Tank Engine - Blue Mountain Quarry toys

Updated on November 6, 2014

Blue Mountain Mystery - The Movie

Thomas the Tank Engine has had many adventures over the last 30 odd years and Blue Mountain Mystery is the latest feature length film. As the latest Thomas episodes and films have changed to CGI this film has been created in the same way.

In this particular movie we learn about the narrow gauge engines which have been left out since the move to CGI and it now appears that they work in a quarry called Blue Mountain Quarry. We meet an engine who has been on the Island of Sodor for many years but has kept himself hidden because of an accident upon his arrival.

In this lens we will be looking at the toys and playsets associated with this particular motion picture rather than the film itself.

Blue Mountain Mystery Playsets

As you would imagine with a massive title such as Thomas (lets face it, we all know who he is) that there are many different play sets available, ranging from the ever popular Hornby series for the avid collector to the plastic Track master system aimed for children.

The two we are focusing on is the Trackmaster system and the Take and play sets available.

The Track master set is a huge project for the collector, there are many sets to collect depicting various scenes and places within the Island of Sodor. all the tracks are able to be interconnected and all the trains can be run on the tracks. Most of the engines from all of the series are available however stock does change and often some engines and play sets become discontinued.

Take and Play is as it sounds, an easily carried play set consisting of yet more interconnecting tracks and engines which are this time motorized , although the engines and characters do not fit the Trackmaster Set.

A cheery new addition to the amazing Thomas & Friends Trackmaster trains and tracks is the Trackmaster Mountain Quarry with the same good quality and durability as its previous members. This train and track set features a nice round lower track connected to a high mountainous track with an excellent drop to the lower track without the train falling over.

Let the conducting skills of your little one be satisfied with this daring drop Thomas Playset. The entire packaging includes a Thomas Train, a crane, a cargo car, a high loop track and thrilling motor action throughout. Intended for ages three and up but the good quality track and nice, fluid motion promises to please even older kids and adults alike. This playset has the potential to threaten even the most daring dares of all. The train or truck rides up the mountain, round the mountain quarry and out. As Thomas comes out from the quarry the bridge collapses as in the track drops to the lower one, accelerating the speed to gain momentum for a second round trip up to the mountainous track. The track is longer than ever and is 120cm in length.

This will be a great new addition to the TrackMaster collection of your little conducting master.

The theme of the Play is set on an interesting encounter of the two trusted friends when Thomas is pulled up an inclined path by his friend Owen while a cutting saw places blue mountain stones in the cargo car attached to Thomas.
