Product codes/item numbers for Plarail Thomas?
#1
What are the "true" item numbers for every item in the Thomas range? Engines are assigned numbers e.g. TS-01, TS-02 etc. but they must have an actual stock number. Sets do not have a two-letter/two-number numbering system. Only thing I can guess is it must be the last six digits in the UPC (barcode), which differs from item to item. All I've got so far is from these items in my collection:
335771 - Thomas at the Suspension Bridge Set
826095 - Gator and Marion
968153 - Hurricane and Frankie
977735 - Thomas the Tank Engine Island of Sodor Challenge

EDIT: It seems 1999.co.jp has these 6-digit product numbers for Thomas items going back for at least the last few years.

Thats an interesting question Fred. Wonder why some Thomas and Friends engines have the TS numbers and others do not?

Okay, so here I have compiled a list of each Plarail Thomas & Friends item made since 1992, with their item numbers and release dates. A lot of them are still unknown, particularly the 90s/early 00s sets.

Well, most of the release dates come off the TrackMaster wiki, which were researched by Jdogman.

plarail thomas line shouldn't be too difficult to find on Hobby search.

But the first wave of Plarail Thomas Trains (early 90's - early 2000's) would be very hard to find the product numbers because all those trains and sets are pretty rare to find with their boxes

What's interesting about TOMY Plarail Thomas & Friends in Japan is that... they don't really make much per year. They don't flood the market with countless new SKUs like they do/did in the US and UK.
