YES! LET’S COMBINE SHIPPING. Please pay as you normally would. Once I determine exact shipping cost I refund the full difference, rounded UP to the nearest $1 to thank you for buying multiple pieces from me. O Canada! Japan, Australia, Europe: combining shipments makes particular sense.
ABOUT FAKES...Counterfeit Thomas abounds. When you hold a fake in your hands you probably will not credit it. Fakes are blatant, shameless trash, costing their makers the bare minimum and fooling many buyers long enough only to take their money.
Online, sorting fake from real can be easy. Simply insist on seeing wheel interiors before you buy. All but the earliest models have copyright details moulded into the interior face of each wheel. Such moulds add manufacturing cost and facilitate prosecution, so fakes have blank wheels or nonsense inscriptions, usually the former. Anyone selling authentic Thomas trains will be eager to prove it, which is why my listings give you pictures of the copyright marks.
COMPATIBILITY Magnetic couplers. Best with real wood trains and tracks, by Battat, Brio, Circo, Fisher Price, Geoffrey, Gullane, HiT, IKEA, Imaginarium, Kidkraft, Learning Curve, Mattel, Maxim, Melissa & Doug, Orbrium, Pottery Barn, TOMY, Toys R Us....
NO NEW PLASTIC. Sellers can get new plastic mailers and plastic packing tape for free, but the only new packaging I use is 100% recycled paper and Elmer’s glue. I pay for it.
PRETTY PLEASE come follow me, username destabilize. This store helps me make ends meet as I raise a beautiful little boy. I am grateful for every kind of support.
Sincerely - Susan
