Great way to transition to model trains
on January 8, 2006
This is a great toy for train loving kids, a great upgrade as your child grows out of the wooden version. It has also proven to be a useful way to teach him how to be careful with something. It is not fragile, but nowhere near as durable (obviously) as the wooden (Brio) Thomas trains & accessories, and requires more care and attention.
Useful bit of info: this set only has enough track for a (pretty boring) oval. If you want to expand it, you need to know which color ez-track comes in the set (Bachman EZ track comes in two colors: black and grey roadbed). None of the pictures or descriptions I was able to find told that: it's the black roadbed. This is a bit of a disadvantage, and my only complaint, as the number of expansion options from bachmann for the black roadbed are much more limited than for the grey. I don't know why.
