My son has several die cast Thomas figures and they don't fit his wood rail set. The wheelbase is too narrow so the won't go into the slots. They did make some wooden Thomas characters and they fit. I found his at our local Barnes and Noble. I haven't bought them in the last 2 to 3 years but I know they are out there because I have a box full. Hope this was some help.
