This is a fairly comprehensive, but not complete, listing of known BRIO Wooden Railway and Wooden Railway compatible theme products from 1980 and on. It was generated mostly from BRIO catalogs, but includes product info from numerous other sources including other colletors, retail boxes and packages, old product listings from BRIO's web site on the Internet Archive, and eBay listings.
You'll notice that some products are listed multiple times, even with the same product number. This incidcates a change in styling from one year to the next. Some products, like the Lifting Bridge #33357, had several iterations under the same number. Others, like the School Bus, got a new product code with each update. And some, like the Footbridge and Family, sometimes got a new code and sometimes did not. BRIO was not consistent here.
Special thanks go to collectors Dave Pecota and artheathen for their assistance. They provided some catalog scans, product information, bits of history, and lots of advice as I assembled this database.
BRIO received their license to sell Thomas the Tank Engine trains in the U.K. in 1996, though production did not begin until 1997 and product brochures weren't printed until 1998. All Thomas products were marketed under the name "Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends", save for Lady, Diesel 10, Dodge, and Splatter, which were marketed under "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" after the release of the 2000 movie of the same name. BRIO lost their license in 2001.
BRIO did not produce any Thomas products for sale by dealers in the U.S. That license was held by Learning Curve from the early 1990's until 2011, and it is currently owned by Fisher-Price.
