i remember sending back several trains that were part of the recall. i'm pretty positive that the only one affected were those with red paint.

i was bummed that i sent back three and i only got one engine back in return--"as a gift", supposedly!

We bought non-Thomas only but based on my experience with my sister's Thomas stuff, the new stuff in stores is a sad, sad joke compared to the older stuff. Lots of plastic and electronic lights and very little wood. At least the old stuff was durable and mostly wood. You can buy the older line at CL, garage sales, or ebay but I wouldn't recommend it. Thomas has had MASSIVE RECALLS for lead and other contaminates and you should assume anything old is contaminated.
