The Thomas Wooden Railway's wooden track system has gone through many changes throughout the years.

Wooden Railway

Plain track

The first track system from 1993-1994 featured a plain, smooth design similar to most wooden track systems of the time such as BRIO.

Clickity-Clack Track

Clickity-Clack Track was the second design of track used, from 1994 to 2001. The track featured a unique design with grooves cut into the track pieces in order to both mimic the appearance of track sleepers and to create a clicking sound whenever an engine's wheels passed over the grooves. This clicking sound was similar to the sounds created by real train wheels rolling on rails, and is what gave the track the "Clickity-Clack" name.

Traction Rails

TrackPiece8.0"StraightMaletoFemale
Traction Rails (also referred to as Thomas Track) was used from 2002-2017. The track featured track sleeper detailing and etching in the rails used to provide traction for battery-operated vehicles. The track also featured a road system underneath straight track pieces, and additional curves and roadway pieces were introduced. The road featured traffic lines printed underneath. Products featuring the road system phased out in around 2010, although roadway traffic line printing featured underneath straight track pieces until 2014, where the printing was removed. Most individual track pieces were discontinued in 2009. Individual track items sold per piece were introduced as exclusives on the online store in 2014. The track system had a minor redesign in 2013 when Fisher-Price started producing the range, such as plastic male connectors on switch track pieces.

Wood

Track

The track in the Wood range was released in late 2017. It features unique track connectors instead of male and female connections which can connect to other track pieces at either end. The traction for the battery-operated vehicles has been removed, and the Thomas and Friends logo is printed on each piece. The track system has been heavily simplified, with straight track only being available at one length and curved track only being available in one radius. Curved track pieces are at a 60 degree angle instead of 45 degrees. Switch tracks are now constructed entirely of plastic and feature a knob to switch the track, while track to surface ramps are now also plastic. Adapters to connect to Wooden Railway track are included with sets and track packs released in 2017 and 2018.
