Welcome to the Dieselworks! Diesel and all his diesel engine friends oil into the Dieselworks for rest and repairs. Happy Hook helps with engine repairs, as Diesel 10 keeps a watchful eye from his shed. Playset features doors that swing open for engines to ride through, a turntable that spins up to the repair platform and Happy Hook’s rotating crane arm to lift and load cargo. Diesel is a durable die-cast Take-n-Play engine that can connect to other Take-n-Play engines and vehicles with magnet connectors that connect either way. Playset folds out to 24" long x 17" wide x 10” high and includes a convenient carry handle.

MARCH 2015 UPDATE: The only thing I'd caution is that if you want a set your youngster can EASILY and QUICKLY take on the road with you, you might want to consider one of the $30 & under MSRP playsets instead. Fisher-Price includes a new "Collector Checklist" in some (not all) Take-n-Play items each year, but they're only hawking the latest stuff. If you have any interest in knowing which other $35 & over MSRP sets (which I've come to categorize as "elaborate") have released since 2010, when Fisher-Price took over the Thomas diecast line from Learning Curve's "Take-Along" and renamed it "Take-n-Play", here's a list for you (in order of introduction so you know what your options are: Rescue from Misty Island, Rock Quarry Run, Load & Go, Rumbling Gold Mine Run, Thomas at Pirate's Cove, The Dieselworks, The Great Quarry Climb, Thomas at the Ironworks, Thomas' Adventure Castle, Slate Loading Station, Lion Canyon, Roaring Dino Run, and Skarloey at the Wharf... I wouldn't recommend them for easy transport though (and wouldn't recommend Roaring Dino Run at all!), but those were the ones Grandma said had to stay put in our basement's family room (when a set comes with instructions, that's pretty much a clue to you that they're not easy for a 3 year old to close up to "take-n-play" with!), but they're super if you plan to keep them set up at home!
10/25/16 update: I'm going back and adding this update to each of my Take-n-Play reviews, since it's important information for any parents/grandparents out there with a young Thomas & Friends enthusiast who holds a special place in their heart, and is considering beginning a collection for them. I just found out the TnP line of diecast trains/vehicles/rolling stock with magnetic connectors is being REPLACED by Fisher-Price in 2017 with a diecast line called "Thomas & Friends Adventures", which will be TnP models modified with PLASTIC HOOK & LOOP COUPLERS. Obviously, your youngster will not be able to connect the 2014-2016 TnP models (with their flat, round 1-way magnetic connectors), nor the 2010-2014 TnP models - or Learning Curve's compatible 2002-2010 Take Along models - with their protruding 2-way magnetic connectors - with the new types of couplers as of next year.
2/17/17 Update: Fisher-Price must've received a slew of complaints from Take-n-Play owners, because they've now developed magnetic clip engine connectors (to clip onto the magnetic trains - but ONLY those with the flat round 1-way magnets... they don't want to invite comparisons between the high quality of the older trains with protruding 2-way magnets! - that have a plastic hook & loop coupler to be able to connect to the new Adventures engines), along with track adapter pieces (Take-n-Play track pieces/sets have only 1 male or female part at the end to connect up to other track/sets, while the new Adventures tracks/sets have both one male & 1 female part on EACH end), available by directly contacting F-P.
