Help me pick out a train table for DS.

My mom wants to get DS a train table for Christmas. She wants me to pick it out. We're looking for the mac daddy of train tables. It must be compatible with Thomas stuff. My experience with train tables is limited to the tables at Barnes & Noble and our doc's office. Both of those tables are awesome - DS never wants to leave either place! The tracks and buildings are bolted down on those tables. I think having the stuff bolted down is a really good idea for my DS. He's very destructive. He has a billion toys. It would stay more intact and usable if the parts are bolted down. It would be awesome if the table came with the tracks and buildings. It would be even better if the table was already set up for the tracks and buildings to be fastened down. I like the tables that have storage underneath, but that's not a requirement at all.

Suggestions? Recs? Thanks in advance!

I like what they did to make a train table

DS1 had a train table from Sears it was on sale for $60 including wooden track and train set. Since Ds2 we upgraded to a train table w/ drawer storage underneath, it is nice. KidKraft runs cheapest usually, Melissa and Doug is on sale.

Walmart has one for around 70. We have it for my 2 almost 3 year old and he loves it. It also comes with a track set that the thomas trains will work on. Im not sure that any of them come with the tracks bolted down.
