LEGO Juniors sets use normal LEGO System bricks. In other words, they are exactly the same size as the "normal" LEGO bricks. However, the Junior sets are specifically designed for younger children. They often have large single-use pieces (for example, for walls or frames), and are generally very easy to construct. They also limit the use of small or ...
To answer your question, no there is no such plate with DUPLO tubes on the bottom and LEGO studs on top. HOWEVER regular LEGO and DUPLO are completely compatible - as long as the regular LEGO bricks are at least 2x2 studs. Just cover the DUPLO table with regular LEGO bricks and you are done...(c; You could actually use regular LEGO plates too, however the ...
The Thomas and Friends license is currently with Mega Bloks (as of January 2014). For now, that means Lego is not planning on producing any new sets.

It depends on your goal, as Jason said. He illustrated pretty well why out of the package lego trains don't run on duplo track. However, if you just want something for your kids to dink around with, it is possible to build a wheeled train that will drive on duplo track without using a duplo train as it's base. The trick is to use monster truck tires or ...
I would recommend BlueBrick, which is a versatile LEGO layout editor by Alban Nanty. Apperently it has Duplo parts too, so I believe it should meet your needs. It can actually do much more for your layout planning needs (including modular tables if your club has some, for example), so maybe you'll consider it overkill as well, but since it's specifically ...
