Fred is a hot-orange coal car. His puffy, air-filled cheeks show that he is a hard worker. He is pulled by Gordon or any of the other freight engines. Based on the award-winning television series Shining Time Station
by the Reverend W. Awdry, the Thomas the Tank train system fulfills all of a child's choo-choo dreams. Each vehicle has a different name, character, and face. It is wooden and 2 inches high with black plastic wheels. The magnetic bumpers at both ends of each engine make linkup easy. Children will become friends with each one (sold separately), developing imaginative play as well as new social, motor, and cognitive skills as they mature. --Sandy Hirsch
