Isn't there a screw inside the body shell?

No, that's trackmaster. The tomy & plarail thomas (2003-2017 version) face can just be carefully popped off with a small flathead screwdriver or a pocket knife.

Actually, neither did I until a friend told me a few months ago.

So I've finished restoring my very first Plarail trains. Plarail Spacia and a customized "cameo engine" based on Plarail Thomas.

Fantastic P-Town

You are on your way to being a master Plarail mechanic and customizer. I really like how you memorialized your first ever plarail train ( the Spacia) with the dates on it. never get rid of that one even if you give up playing with these as you will get back into them when you are older and wouldn't it be neat to show your future kids or grandchildren your first ever train and how you repaired and revived him. A great lessen for them to learn that even they can do it.

There are a couple of interesting areas of the Layout I like. First your lake area is cool and I like your imagination in customizing the back of one of your Ffarquhar stations to make it look like an engine shed. Was that what you were going for?

Hello, Newby here!
I want to touch up some of the faces, which have had the grey paint chipped off. Do you know if there is a paint every one uses? (Like humbrol in UK)

Hello Softbelly and welcome to BPT's.

I haven't done too much with Thomas faces but what exactly are you trying to repair? What grey paint is chipping? Are you just talking about the eyebrows, mouth and eyes?

It is very difficult to find the same grey pain texture to fix the paint chips. You may want to consider to repaint the entire face.

I use grey sharpie to fix the chipped paint.

Thanks Leyland

I didn't know there are painted faces. All the de-faced ones I came across are the color of the plastic. No paint, no chips.
