Dear Keith,
Bach EMF is a feature on DCC decoders. Since Thomas is analog, the answer is no.
Have Fun!

You could add a decoder with Back-EMF (Mr. Bachmann - I typed "Bach-EMF" too, but then caught myself! Wink) if you or someone you know is handy with a soldering iron. Just make sure it runs well in DC first before you convert it to DCC.

Here's a link to a pictorial for adding DCC to Thomas:

It says it's for the Limited 2002 Thomas, but the setup should be the same, I believe.

EDIT: The page is picture extensive, just warning you.
