HASH(0xa12b02ac) out of 5 stars 2 piece rolling stock item carries "steel" wire & pipes 22 Dec. 2011
By Grandma Zizzy - Published on
Verified Purchase
Sodor Supply Co. was the second piece of non-character rolling stock we purchased for a Take-n-Play collection we started for our oldest grandson. He was about 2 1/2, had just discovered Thomas, and - with the wooden trains being out of our price range - we were so excited to come across the Take-n-Play line of diecasts! Fisher-Price had just taken over the Thomas diecast line from Learning Curve's "Take-Along" that year, renaming it "Take-n-Play, and we were just SO impressed with the quality of these little pieces... a very heavy concentration of diecast metal, just incredible detailing - definitely "collection worthy". We went "all in", and set out to collect every TnP item released. After a year of continued quality purchases, my husband encouraged me to begin writing reviews to let other parents/grandparents in on this gem. So here's the gist of my 5 star review (but keep reading...)

Sodor Supply Co. is a non-character rolling stock item (rail cars, trucks, etc. that - in the "real" world! - can't move unassisted by another vehicle). It has two cars - the large green one is a nice, weighty diecast with "SODOR SUPPLY CO." printed in black in large letters on both sides of the body of the truck, and in tiny letters within a hexagon near the top; it carries a load of banded "steel" pipes (actually plastic, and removable) and has 8 black wheels that swivel. The smaller piece is blue plastic with 4 black wheels and carries a load of 3 spools of thick "steel" wiring (again, actually plastic and removable.) The NEAT part happens when you press the black button on the top of the large piece... the bed lifts to the side and dumps the load of pipes! We paid $8.26 to add this item to our grandson's collection, Sodor Supply Co. first appeared on the original (Spring 2010) TNP Collector Checklist, and we paid $8.26 for our grandson, and Thomas has really been working hard pulling these heavy pipes and wiring around the Sodor land of make believe in our basement! What we also love, since we're collecting all of the Take-n-Play items, is that the item's name is printed on the bottom of each piece (though not on the pipes or wiring... you'll need to keep track of those!)

Now... what I see in this photo does LOOK like the same item we purchased back in 2010. However, in updating one of my reviews recently, I noticed that the photo was NOT an accurate depiction of a Take-n-Play item we'd purchased and reviewed. As I looked further, I saw there were MANY 5 star reviews I'd given Take-n-Play products between 2010-2012, when the line was superb. We began noticing quality changes in 2013 - by the end of the year, we'd become truly disappointed and stopped the collection. The purpose of this update is to let anyone considering a purchase of Sodor Supply Co. know that they should make sure that the photo is accurate, and that this is not actually a plasticized, detail-stripped item that replaced the one we purchased. If it's the same item, DEFINITELY rates 5 stars... if it's a replacement, definitely does NOT (and since they're only asking $9 for it, I'm thinking it's NOT an original.) In our opinion, Fisher-Price took this line down to 4 stars in 2013, 3 stars in 2014, and now this wouldn't be worth anywhere close to the $12 MSRP Fisher-Price is asking for their large so-called "diecast" items in 2015. This is no longer a collection-worthy line, so unless you can be assured that this is one of the ORIGINAL 2010 Sodor Supply Co. pieces, don't waste your money! (And just so you're aware, Take-n-Play products are not compatible with wooden tracks.)

In case you're interested, here's a list of the originally high quality pieces of non-character rolling stock pieces that you might want to look: 2010's Quarry Car, Sodor Supply Co., Diesel Fuel Tanker, Storybook Car, Sodor Zoo Snake Car, Bubble Tanker, Farm Animal Car. 2011's Sodor Mining Co., Spider Exhibit Car, Sodor Cement Mixer, Crocodile Special. 2012's Oil Tanker (there was also a Sodor Circus Monkey car, but as far as rolling stock goes, that's when we started questioning Fisher-Price's commitment to quality --- it was cute, but it was PLASTIC... the only metal on it were its magnet connectors.)

HASH(0xa15a6924) out of 5 stars Doesn't work well with Take n Play sets 8 Jan. 2012
By Dragondelpaz - Published on
Verified Purchase
-- Cargo won't stay on!
-- Big carriage too long for curves.
-- Smaller cargo can't be picked up by crain cause it doesn't have any metal in it (the bigger cargo does).

By themsevles these are fantastic carriages. The problem is that the Fisher Price team didn't design them to work on the matching Take n Play sets.

The cargo (pipes) stay on if you're rolling them along a flat table. The problem is that all of the current Take n Play sets are all really really bumpy. They haven't tested these at all to make sure it works well together. There is almost no way little kids will be able to keep the cargo on the faltbeds. Also the larger of the two carriages is too long for some of the turns and it will fall over and derail. For instance, it doesn't make the turn in front of the Tidmoth Sheds. That's more of a problem with the poor design of the tracks.

The carriages themselves are great by themselves. It's just that carriages and the sets they run on are supposed to work together well and match... and they don't.

The first problem could be fixed pretty easily by better railings to keep the cargo on. Or perhaps a small magnet to stick it the surface of the flatbed.
HASH(0xa12b09a8) out of 5 stars Mostly Plastic, but still fun 20 Jan. 2013

My son loves Thomas, but this set seems like a silly addition. I'll tell you why I bought it: I used to work in wire manufacturing and we produced reels of wire that look like the ones in the set. My son likes running them around the rails, but for one, the pipe car is huge, easily the length of the longest engines, and mostly metal. The reel car and the reels are mostly plastic. We have another car similar to the reel car but colored green with no cargo. I put a small square of wax paper over it and cut some bamboo skewers to length and used wood glue to make them a solid bundle. The wax paper allowed me to make it a good tight fit to the round shape and not glue it to the base. Now my son calls it a "Jobi log truck" so he can play Misty Island Rescue.

We needed rolling stock for our Thomas trains! This was perfect and my son loves that the green car can "dump" out it's cargo when we get to the station.
