Is Melissa and Doug Railway set compatible with Take Along Thomas and Friends trains?

Question by : Is Melissa and Doug Railway set compatible with Take Along Thomas and Friends trains?
Melissa and Doug 130 pc railway set says it is compatible with “Thomas,” but there are 3-4 different sizes of Thomas trains series. I bought Lionel Railroad set, but the rails were too wide for Take Along Thomas and Friends trains that we had. I searched for the width of Melissa and Doug railroad but couldn’t find it anywhere. If anyone has Melissa and Doug Railway set, how wide is the rail from one grid to the other? Is it narrow enough to fit the die-cast Thomas trains?

Best answer:

Answer by batraylover
The Melissa and Doug Wooden Railway set is compatible with both Thomas and Brio wooden train systems. The Take Along Thomas and Friends sets are different then the traditional Thomas sets and are not compatible with the Thomas Wooden Railway. The Thomas Wooden Railway is the ONLY Thomas set that is compatible with the Melissa and Doug Wooden Railway set.

Bachmann HO Scale Thomas & Friends line 2002-2009

A video showing how Bachmann’s HO scale Thomas & Friends line has grown since their start in 2002. Another video to look for is how the number of freight cars (or trucks, as they’re called in the UK, and what I call them when referring to Thomas even though I’m American) has grown. And I know Salty is not pulling the trucks he has in the set released in 2010. DISCLAIMER: I own no rights.
