Thomas & Pals: Groovy Trains

There's a dream just down the track. Can you see it? Your child can. Don't leave them looking for a plain ol' bus ticket to their dreams. Give them a hug, and a snazzy train, and send them on their way. And don't worry. They'll be back before bedtime. Just like a businessman in the 1950s.

The hand car is groovy; the arm actually moves up and down!

And since woot mentioned groovy trains, remember "Groovy Train" by the Farm? Great tune!

I think Ringo Starr and George Carlin have been conductors before on TV, along with Alec Baldwin in the movie version.

Do these come in the standard hang-on-the-wall packaging as you'd usually find them in the store?

Great deal!

Michael Brandon has been a long time "conductor."

Really great deal. Picked up three. Very surprised more trains aren't sold out by now. I guess everyone else except me is stocked up on their Thomas regalia.

EDIT: My trains arrived in the standard store packaging.

I can't get more than one train in my cart. What am I doing wrong? There's no 'continue shopping' button, so I use the back button. Then it kicks whatever was in my cart out. Gah.

It's the way woot works. You can only buy 1, 2 or 3 of a single item in a transaction. This used to be a problem but since they have moved to the $5 shipping for everything you buy that day you can just make several separate transactions without penalty.

Sooo excited about this deal! My son LOVES all of the engines. I wish I would have known earlier I would have gotten the expansion track :-(

So how do you buy these trains? I am trying to buy different ones and it has no button to continue shopping--just asks if I want to abandon my order? I just want to add to my order.. Sorry read the posts above. I guess I have to buy separately. Makes no sense.

BTW, Pierce Brosnan was a conductor but Michael Brandon is the best one. George Carlin was not great.

Even crazier, they all come in separate shipments. We had ordered some trains and expansion track last week and 5 separate boxes showed up yesterday. I'm not sure how they can make any money that way!
Thinking of ordering some more to have on hand for upcoming birthdays.

You only pay $5 shipping on the first item in the day. After than shipping is free until midnight Central.

So order away. Just order one. Come back and order the next one.
