Many GeoTrax Sets Are Comprised of Teams

There are quite a few GeoTrax sets that are vehicle and person teams who are the best at what they do. They may be the toughest, the fastest, the greenest, the crabbiest, or whatever superlative the designers could think of.

Listed here are almost all of those teams. There are a few of them that actually fit better under another theme, so you’ll have to look for them there.

Bull and Bruno Get the Tough Jobs Done Well

L4799 Bull and Bruno
L4799 Bull and Bruno

Bull and Bruno (L4799) are both big and tough. They’re probably really nice though. Use them to haul those tough loads or to get through a tough spot. That’s who they are – the toughest team.

This set was apparently released in 2007.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Train Engine (Bull) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • 2 Cargo Cars
  • 2 Convex Cargo Crates
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Engineer (Bruno)

Have an Adventure High in the Mountains with Alpine and Will

L4800 Alpine and Will
L4800 Alpine and Will

Plow through the snow with Will at the helm of Alpine with Will (L4800) in charge. Carry the cargo up into the hills and down again.

This popular set was likely introduced in 2007.

  • Snowplow Engine (Alpine) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Engineer (Will)
  • Cargo Car with Roof

Add a Little Science to Your Journey with Goggles and Bunsen

L5906 Goggles and Bunsen
L5906 Goggles and Bunsen

With the Smartest Team (L5906) on your side, it’s hard to make a wrong move. Generate some excitement traveling with Goggles and the slightly nerdy-looking Bunsen.

This set was released in 2008.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Goggles the Engine (Requires 1 AAA battery)
  • Generator Car
  • Cargo Car
  • Bunsen the Engineer

Tough It Out with Ox and Jed

L5907 Ox and Jed
L5907 Ox and Jed

Ox and Jed the Strongest Team (L5907) will get you through even the roughest situations. The engine looks as strong as an ox – as well it should.

This set was released in 2007 and includes the following.

  • Train Engine (Ox) (Requires 1 AAA battery)
  • 2 Cargo Cars
  • Engineer (Jed)
  • 4-Barrel Cargo

Can You Afford to Ride with Sheffield and Jenkins? Can You Afford Not To?

L5908 Sheffield and Jenkins
L5908 Sheffield and Jenkins

The fancy-looking Sheffield and Jenkins (L5908) appear to be unaffordable, but if they’re the most generous team, why wouldn’t you take a trip with them? When you press the gold dome on the engine, it lights up and makes typical engine sounds.

This pair was probably released in 2007 or 2008.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Engine (Sheffield) (Requires 1 AAA battery)
  • 2 Train Cars
  • Engineer (Jenkins)

Play Nice with Brutus and Victor

L5909 Brutus and Victor
L5909 Brutus and Victor

I doubt that Fisher Price would name this pair “The Biggest Bullies” today. However, since that’s what they did back in 2007 or 2008 when this set was released, we’re stuck with that name today. Perhaps you can use this set to teach about not being a bully.

A complete set (L5909) consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Engine (Brutus)
  • Open Cargo Car
  • Passenger Car
  • Engineer (Victor)

Travel Back to the Days of Yore with Knight and Sir John

L5912 Knight and Sir john
L5912 Knight and Sir john

You could argue that this is the first of two releases of the Knight train. The other would be as part of set T1350 where Santa is the engineer instead of Sir John. In that set, Knight and Sir John (L5912) has a new paint job in which he sports green highlights and a snowflake instead of the heraldic symbols on the shield shown here.

This set was apparently released in 2007.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Train Engine (Knight) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Dining Car
  • Sleeping Car
  • Engineer (Sir John)
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)

This copy of Sir John seems to have had one too many jousts.

L5912 Sir John L5912 Sleeping Car L5912 Dining Car

Go Green with Recycling Truck Dumpster, Hugh, and Vern

L6375 Dumpster with Hugh and Vern
L6375 Dumpster with Hugh and Vern

Maybe it’s a little unusual that the truck is called Dumpster instead of Recycling Bin and that these guys are called the Stinkiest Team, but you get the idea. Hugh and Vern look friendly and fun to play with. (I’m not sure which is which or who is who.)

Recycling Truck Dumpster with Hugh and Vern (L6375) were probably released in 2007.

A complete set is made of just the three items listed below.

  • Recycling Truck (Dumpster) (Requires 1 AAA battery)
  • Worker #1 (Hugh)
  • Worker #2 (Vern)

Go for a Spin with Sally on Chatty or Chirpy

L6927 Sally with Chatty and Chirpy
L6927 Sally with Chatty and Chirpy

These these are known as the friendliest team. Personally, I think Vern (or Hugh?) in the set above look friendlier.

Sally, the redhead, is one of the passengers on the trolley. I don’t know which trolley is Chatty and which is Chirpy. The only difference between them is the paint job.

Sally with Chatty and Chirpy (L6927) was released in 2007 and consist of the item listed below.

  • Trolley #1 (Chatty)
  • Trolley #2 (Chirpy)
  • Passenger (Sally)

Can’t Decide? Don’t Ask Woohoo and Opie

L6928 Woohoo and Opie
L6928 Woohoo and Opie

I guess these guys are the most confused because the lead car in the train can drive both directions. I’d be confused too.

Woohoo and Opie (L6928) were first released in 2007 and were produced until 2009. They were then re-released with the addition of a cement mixer and a cargo crate as set P8963.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Train Engine (Woohoo)
  • Cargo Car
  • Engineer (Opie)

Mr. Cross with Cranks Is Aptly Named

L6929 Mr. Cross with Cranks
L6929 Mr. Cross with Cranks

Just look at that face! I don’t think there is a more suitably named set in all of GeoTrax-dom. Mr. Cross with Cranks (L6929) certainly look their parts.

This is the first release of The Crabbiest Team which came out in 2007. The later release didn’t include the caboose.

The underside of the engine shows several product IDs because this design, in various colors, was used for a number of sets. At least one of these numbers is rather suspect though because the set it refers to doesn’t have an engine that looks like Mr. Cross.

Besides L6929, there are the IDs L6930 (see Screech below), P8962 (Ironface), R3983 (Starter Set), R9940 (Cranks 2nd release), and R8249 (Holiday Train Set).

The complete version of this first release includes these pieces.

  • Engine (Mr. Cross)
  • Caboose
  • Engineer (Cranks)

Ride Uptown and Downtown on the Subway with Screech and Skip

L6930 Screech and Skip
L6930 Screech and Skip

Screech is a two-car subway with Skip at the helm. Both cars have open tops and plenty of space for passengers. Skip manages to drive even with a clipboard in hand.

If you look at the product ID on the bottom of the subway, you’ll see “L6929 / L6930”. It is impossible for L6929 to apply here though because that ID was assigned to Mr. Cross with Cranks (above), which bears no resemblance to this subway.

This set was released in 2007.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Screech (Front Subway Car)
  • Screech (Rear Subway Car)
  • Subway Conductor (Skip)

Down on the Farm with Gritty and Farmer Earl

M4142 Gritty and Farmer Earl
M4142 Gritty and Farmer Earl

Get a little muddy with Gritty and Farmer Earl the Dirtiest Team (M4142). Cart the cute little pink pig around the farm by pulling him in the wagon with your tractor. Drop Gritty off and then tote the bale of hay to the pig pen for some bedding.

This wonderful set was released in 2007 and consists of the following items.

  • Tractor (Requires 1 AAA battery)
  • Wagon
  • Farmer (Earl)
  • Pig (Gritty)
  • Hay Bale

Watch Payton and Paul Use the Pumper Car

P8961 Payton, Pumper, and Paul
P8961 Payton, Pumper, and Paul

Payton, Pumper, and Paul (P8961) make a nifty trio. Somehow Payton and Paul, the two workmen (as far as I can tell), manage to pump the handles of the pumper car up and down as it moves along the track, even though one is holding a stop sign and the other carries a sledge hammer. In any case, you can see the orange pumper waggle back and forth as the car goes along behind an engine.

This expansion set was released in 2009. It is made of these pieces.

  • Worker #1 (Payton)
  • Worker #2 (Paul)
  • Pumper Car
  • Cargo Car
  • Dirt Car
  • Railroad Ties Cargo Cube

Making a Second Woohoo and Opie Set Is Even More Confusing

P8963 Woohoo and Opie 2nd Release
P8963 Woohoo and Opie 2nd Release

Imagine how confused Opie must be, now that he has a new train set with reversed colors. Add to that the possibility of getting mixed up with the cement mixer.

Note that the picture above is slightly incorrect. There should be a red cube, not a brown, in the cargo car.

This second edition of the Woohoo and Opie set (P8963) was released in 2009 and includes the following.

  • Train Engine (Woohoo)
  • Engineer (Opie)
  • Cement Mixer
  • Cargo Car
  • Cargo Crate (red, not brown)

Is It King Midas or Goldstein and Grant?

P8965 Goldstein and Grant
P8965 Goldstein and Grant

Surprisingly, Goldstein and Grant (P8965) are not the richest team; they’re the Luckiest Team. I think they’re lucky that this engine can run on silver because that’s what’s filling the tender car. It looks like the engineer is supposed to resemble the real-world General Ulysses S. Grant.

This team was released in 2009. It contains these items.

  • Train Engine (Goldstein)
  • Engineer (Grant)
  • (Silver) Tender Car
  • Cargo Car

Go on an Archaeological Dig with Dusty Bones and Dwight

P8968 Dusty Bones and Dwight
P8968 Dusty Bones and Dwight

P8968 Saber-Tooth Tiger

With Dusty Bones and Dwight (P8968), you can imagine digging up fossils like the skeleton shown or catching wild animals like the tiger.

This interesting set was released in 2009.

A complete set includes the items listed below.

  • Train Engine (Dusty Bones)
  • Engineer (Dwight)
  • Animal Car
  • Cargo Car
  • Saber-Toothed Tiger
  • Animal Skeleton
  • Cargo Crate

Aero and Eric Appear Again

P9694 Aero and Eric
P9694 Aero and Eric

I have listed this as the First Release of Aero and Eric (P9694) even though they appeared as part of the Grand Central Station sets earlier. This is the first time they have ventured out on their own.

This edition was released in 2009 and came with these basic parts.

  • Train Engine (Aero) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Engineer (Eric)
  • 2 Passenger Cars
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)

Keep It Secret Riding on Phantom with Mr. E. S.

P9695 Phantom and Mr. E. S.
P9695 Phantom and Mr. E. S.

Note: Not shown in the picture above is Mr. E. S. (Mysterious…get it?)

Phantom and Mr. E. S. (P9695) is designed similarly to other GeoTrax sets. As Fisher Price did a number of times, this set was simply given a new paint job. It might be a good one to give at Halloween.

This dark set was released in 2009.

A complete set includes these items.

  • Train Engine (Phantom) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Engineer (Mr. E. S.)
  • 2 Cargo Cars
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)

When It Has to Get There Quickly, Hire Blue Pony and Bryce the Speedy Delivery Team

R8637 Blue Pony and Bryce
R8637 Blue Pony and Bryce

The Blue Pony and Bryce set (R8637) is apparently intended to remind you of the Pony Express, but I’m pretty sure children playing with these trains are much too young to understand the reference. They’ll still enjoy the pony pictures and Bryce holding his calculator. Though you might have to explain what that gadget is to them too.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • Train Engine (Blue Pony) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • 2 Cargo Cars
  • Blue Pony Cargo Crate
  • Engineer (Bryce)
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)

Steamer and Samuel Strike Out on Their Own

R9942 Steamer and Samuel
R9942 Steamer and Samuel

Steamer and Samuel the Hardest Working Team (of Timbertown Railway fame) appear by themselves in this Toys R Us exclusive set (R9942). I consider this the second release of this team, even though the first release had a few more pieces.

Unlike the original (Timbertown) set, Steamer is a push train this time around. As you can see, there is just an engine here – no coal car or caboose.

The pair was released in 2009. To make it official, this set includes these items.

  • Engine (Steamer)
  • Engineer (Samuel)

Rock and Pete Look Pretty Tough

W6843 Rock and Pete

W6843 Rock and Pete

With Pete holding that oversized wrench, you don’t want to stand in his way. I guess some trains, like Rock, need a tool that big sometimes.

Rock and Pete (W6843) is another of the smaller sets that is just a train engine, remote controller, and engineer.

  • Train Engine (Rock) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Engineer (Pete)
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)

Aero and Eric – One More Time

W6846 Aero and Eric Turbo
W6846 Aero and Eric Turbo

The popular Aero and Eric (W6846) make one more appearance with the latest style turbo remote controller and, of course, changed colors.

This set came out in 2011 and consists of the following items.

  • Train Engine (Aero) (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
  • Engineer (Eric)
  • Remote Controller (Requires 3 AAA batteries)
