Down the middle is a tunnel with 5 entry-exit access points. On the top of the playset are the infamous Shake-Shake Bridge and Ol' Wheezy log-slinging crane. When you place a train on the plate in front of the Shake-Shake Bridge and squeeze the trigger switch back, the plate pops up and sends the engine across the mechanically shaking bridge. The train then zooms down the slope through the attached tunnel feature, busting open the closed doors.
At the bottom of the track there is a boarded up tunnel entrance. The "boards" closing off the tunnel can be flipped up using another switch. The Ol' Wheezy crane has a finger-operated crank at the top that lowers and raises the hook on its support pole. The crane housing can also be swiveled around 360 degrees.
There is a double "Jobi" log feature that comes with the set that magnetically adheres to the bottom of the crane's hook. All the other log pieces included in this lot can be magnetically lifted by this crane-hook.
The set is complete except for a stock Thomas train toy which I replaced in this listing with the special edition Thomas and the Raft set (aka "Lost at Sea" Thomas). I have also included 3 Plastic Pine Trees that are from a JAKKS Pacific toy train set because they enhance this set nicely. These "pine trees" are easily detached and reattached to their "trunks" for enhanced timber-felling, imaginative play. All the pieces that come with the set are easily collapsed and stored away for storage and transport. The Timber Yard housing fits snugly into the center of the raised circle tracks when the Sawmill Table is folded down.
When you place the Splitting Log piece in the feeder area and push the feeding switch, the saw spins and the log splits apart on either side. The log pieces can then be pushed off the Sawmill Table into the waiting Log Carrier Car. The log pieces magnetically adhere to each other.
The Sawmill Table folds up and snaps in place to close off the top section of the storage box which has room for all the train and track pieces that came with the set. There is an opening and closing red gate at the bottom that closes off an additional storage section that can hold about 4 to 6 of the diecast trains.The set is covered in a delightful array of colorful, molded sawmill related design features and logos and has a carrying handle on top. Echo Waterfall Tunnel with Culdee (2007, 2337SK00) - This Lights and Sounds, battery-operated mini-playset is complete. It features an Ascending Track , a special Descending Track , a Waterfall / Rock Formation , and a Culdee train. When you send a train down the descending track in the middle of the rock formation through the clear plastic waterfall flap, it triggers a switch that produces a rushing water sound alternating with the final instrumental stanza of the Britt Allcroft, Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends theme song while two small lights activate behind the upper portion of the waterfall detail. There are cutouts in the rock formation so you can see your train move through the "cave" beneath the waterfall. There are charming molded details of foliage and Sodor Waterfall and warning sign decals on the outside of the rock formation. Culdee is a special mountain climbing engine with an extra face on the back of his cab so he can see both directions whether going up or down his uni-directional, mountainside track. The Culdee character was only featured in the original Rev.
Awdry, Thomas & Friends Railway book series. Bash (2010, T5577) - Bash is one of the three members of the "Logging Locos" team of wood-fire powered, log hauling steam engines that Thomas discovers on Misty Island. This original 2010 version is most detailed and beautifully rendered of all the Take-n-Play diecast designs. Along with his reverse-mirror engine Dash (minus the freckles), he loves to giggle and play pranks as he races at top speed along the rails, usually flinging logs to and fro in the process. Dash (2010, T5576) - Dash is one of the three members of the Logging Locos.
Just like his reverse-mirror engine Bash (with freckles), he also loves to giggle and play pranks, racing Bash (or anyone else) along the rails, usually flinging logs around too. Ferdinand with Tender (2009, T0247) - Ferdinand is the largest of the three members of the "Logging Locos" team. With his ever-present, gap-toothed smile and "that's right" catch-phrase, Ferdinand is pretty laid back, content to sit back chuckle at the high-jinks his compatriots Bash and Dash always seem to be involved in. He still gets in a few log launches here and there, however, when he feels like joining in the fun. Thomas and the Raft - Lost at Sea (2010, V7645) - This ultra-rare, K-Mart stores exclusive version of Thomas features an unique, water-splashed paint detail and plastic barge designed to float in the bath/pool/sink.
Captain (2009, T4153) - Captain is the rescue boat member of the Sodor Search and Rescue Team. In the Misty Island Rescue film, he ferries Sir Topham Hatt around looking for Thomas when the #1 engine is lost at sea. He is often pictured in the promotional photos for the "Rescue from Misty Island" playset, but was never actually included with it. This diecast toy does not float, but does have wheels on the bottom for imaginary water adventures.
2 Sodor Log Loader Cars (2003, 19 6 SR00) - These two Sodor Log Loader cars launch their logs to the side when you push the button on the top. One has the original magnetic Log piece that came with the car. The other is paired with a magnetic, Splitting Log piece. The Split Log does not rest flush to the Log Loaders launching bed but it still launches off of it and can be used with the Timber Yard playset mentioned above. Highlights include 2 Ramp Tracks , lots of winding Curve pieces, and 2 specialty Swerving Tracks.
Infinite Divider Storage Box - An excellent storage box for this set, it is a clear box with a snap-to lid that has removable divider pieces that can be arranged at 1/8th inch intervals. Some hinges may be damaged, but they still function adequately. Take a look at the other Thomas & Friends toys I have on offer, all guaranteed as described.
