Info on this layout
Hey guys I need info on this layout[Image: latest?cb=20120314030335]
The reason is I love the look of the turntable and all of the engine sheds. Can people please get more info on this for me and if these sheds and turntables were ever sold
It's a very small image you have there, but I think the sheds are from the Thomas anniversary set being sold now as a box. It's the lid for the set.

Too small for me to see.

Sorry but that is as good as you are going to get
Not sure what the picture of that is doing on Wikia as it just looks like someones personal layout and not a set. Also not sure why, in this day and age, a better larger picture wasn't taken. I can't make out much of anything so I can't help.

the source page has the photo tagged as 2001. looks like an example layout, as you say super, that someone made using plarail items. it may have been scanned out of a catalogue or something, which is why the photo is so small.

Would you know where to get the turntable leylandvictory2?

And the sheds

I think I remember some Japanese youtuber who had one of these turntables and it looked exactly like this one. Can anyone find the video because I cant
It doesn't seem to be a good layout as there is no continuous loop, it starts and ends with the turntable.
true. The poster wants to know where he/she can get a hand on the turntable and the shed.
Blimey, I knew the image was small but I thought I remembered seeing certain things clearer than before.

I found the image off Too Much Thomas, a website of an Australia family which for 11 years ran an exhibit featuring Motor Road and Rail, Plarail, and TrackMaster. The website's domain has expired now, but you can still see their YouTube channel here. The website had pages for each year they did their exhibit, and their earliest page featured images from overseas including this one.

I uploaded the image onto the wikia because I am sure it is an official image and back then, we were still trying to work out the past of the Plarail Thomas range, since the Plarail website goes back to 2006 following the merge of Tomy and Takara. I would love to know where it originated but I believe I will never know. Now that we have a clear understanding of the range's history, let's go over a few things about this.

The buildings I've circled in yellow, I have no clear idea of what they are. I am very certain that there was never a Plarail Tidmouth Sheds or Roundhouse produced. The sheds actually remind me of a Departing Now version made by Bandai. They could all even be set dressing just to make it look fancy, or the smaller sheds could be cardboard models from books or online. The Tomica Thomas range once had some print-out buildings from its website for the short-lived track system.

The red circles indicate something which has confused me. The coaches that Edward and Duck are pulling resemble Tomy Trains coaches, which are really tall and blocky looking. This confuses me since the Tomy Trains range was never sold in Japan. I haven't circled this bit since they're quite hard to see, but Edward, Henry, Gordon, and James look like their redesigned 2003 versions with the white running boards, but Thomas and Percy don't appear to show this.

I really like how the siding arrangement has worked out. I assume it was created using some of a Thomas and Freight Cars set, and cars from multiples of engines, maybe even from Talk 'n' Action engines. The siding from the bottom contains brown cattle vans from James and mail vans from Percy, the siding above has Gordon's green express coaches, but one siding features the red versions, the siding above that features tankers, one with both Percy's and Diesel's fuel tankers, and the highest features Troublesome Trucks and a couple of other cargo cars. Lastly, there's also two Cranky and Bulstrode at the Harbor destinations connected to each other, which looks really nice.
