The American model makers are to release four sets each with remote control functions and capabilities.
James, Percy and Diesel receive the same remote control treatment but with updated faces reflecting the CGI era of the show.
While Percy tows Troublesome Trucks behind, Diesel and James each carry a truck and a caboose from Anopha Quarry and Crovan's Gate respectively.
The four remote control sets from Lionel hit US model and hobby stores later this year.
Thanks to SI3DFilms for the alert.
