Fit and finish isn't there
on November 1, 2014
I have this set and some Thomas mini sets. The Carl stuff is compatible with the Thomas stuff, but there is a CLEAR quality difference! The Thomas stuff fits together so much better. The Carl stuff has huge tolerances in the pieces. The Thomas stuff rolls super smooth; the Carl stuff you REALLY need to focus on keeping it on the track.
I'm also bothered that the table is a universal table and the track layout does not coordinate with the printed table design. For example, it crosses the airport and doesn't work with the roads.
