Hey Mr. Grapevine,
Most large scale trains draw between 0.5 and 1 amp per motor.  This doesn't include features such as lights, sound, and/or smoke.  This is just what the motor itself draws.  Do you have the stock standard large scale Thomas, or the Thomas with DCC sound?

Thanks. I'm referring to the DC Thomas (without sound)

If you are looking for the stall current it is 1.5 amps.

In that case it should be drawing between 0.5 and 1 amp like I said before.  If you had the DCC model, it would be more as you would also be drawing more amps for the sound.
