Also try Big Lots. But there are three different types of trains -- wooden, electric, and diecast. Our Big Lots carries mainly the electric (which use a plastic track).
We got this Imaginarium train table (MUCH BETTER than the Thomas one) which is compatible with the wooden Thomas engines:http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=3140254
We got it on sale and had coupons too so we paid less than it's marked. And I have since seen it on Craigslist for $50. It is more sturdy than the Thomas table, and has two deep drawers. It comes with a TON of stuff too.
So we use it and buy individual wooden engines when we can.
This has been the best though:http://www.amazon.com/Kids-Thomas-En...3207774&sr=1-1
She calls it "Mama Thomas" and the little wooden one is "Baby Thomas" and she sleeps with both.
