Train on the brain

Maybe it's my fault for taking him to Barnes and Nobles to play with the trains a little too often, but Caleb is obsessed with Thomas the train.  Granted, he likes trains as a whole, but he can spot Thomas from a mile away. For Christmas or his birthday in February, we were thinking of getting him the Thomas train table.  Unfortunately, they are the most expensive kind to get.  I wouldn't mind getting him an off-brand train table but I am wondering if those tracks are compatible with Thomas and friends trains?  He has a little mini wooden train set but Thomas doesn't fit right on the tracks.  I also would LOVE for the tracks to already be permanently attached to the table.  Does anyone have any advice for me?  Should I get the Thomas brand or the off brand?  I have also been looking on Craigslist but I haven't found anything that fits my criteria...not to mention that I am still trying to figure out where we are going to put this table...haha.  
I hope you all have a fantabulous weekend.  We have some cleaning and organizing in store for us.  But tomorrow our neighbors are coming over for dinner and I am so excited to play hostess for the evening.  I am going to make baked pasta, salad and bread with whoopie pies for dessert!  I will post the baked pasta recipe next week because it is gooood and super easy.
See ya Monday!

My nephew has the this train table. My brother screwed the tracks into the table so he can't move them. I buy him the trains here in Korea as they are a lot cheaper then there. I think I pay like $5 per train.

Oh, the train table. I'm sure he'll love it, no matter what it is. :) I love watching him push those trains around B&N. Someday when I'm mobile again we need to have another B&N date!
