I think this themed pack probably stems from TV Season 15 (2011), Episode 6 (“James to the Rescue”)… James & Toby – designated “rescue engines” for the day – are trying to help Gordon, who has derailed. Against Toby’s repeated protests that they get Rocky to help rather than attempt the rescue themselves, James decides to first try coupling Gordon and pulling him (which only derails him further), and then pushing him from the back (which ends up cracking the bridge beneath Gordon.) He then reverses and charges toward Gordon, intending to shove him back up, but as they collide James is sent flying into the muddy marsh! He finally agrees they need Rocky. I love it when the trains that come in these themed packs have something to differentiate them from the trains you purchase separately… in this case, James & his tender, as well as both of his rail cars, are splattered with mud! As it shows in the picture, the first (metal) blue car with black detailing & red base carries (removable) bricks & a crate marked “SODOR BUILDING SUPPLY”, while the 2nd (plastic) tan car with green base is labeled “SODOR SHIPPING CO.” on both sides. For some reason, the cargo of my grandson’s 2nd car doesn’t look like the one in the picture, the one I bought has a big mound of what looks like (removable) muddy rocks, which actually sounds more appropriate than what’s in the picture, given the name of the 4 pack! This started out as a “big box store” (Target) exclusive, but Fisher-Price added it to their own 2011 Collector Checklist and it’s now widely available. F-P’s June 2012 MSRPs for their 4 packs are $17, $18 & $19, and with the special detailng, I think it’s worth a midpoint range. My grandson loves the one I found for just $16.

My 2yr old loves trains and he had the take-n-play set already. This was a great addition to his collection. There are small parts that come apart from the set so from a Mom’s perspective it’s easy to lose… and can also pose as a choking hazard to a younger child.
