With the Fisher-Price GeoTrax Remote Control Timber Railway, kids get to be conductors of their very own train. Completely remote-controlled, the three-car train features auto-aligning wheels that ensure the train stays on the tracks. Children will enjoy piloting the train around the railroad's many colorful bends, loops and slopes. They can use the working crane to load logs onto the train, or make a quick stop at the Easy Rail Station. Designed for kids ages two to seven, this train set provides hours of imaginative play.

All Aboard! Fun and Easy to Play With
The Timber Railway is painted in vibrant colors and has a cute, cartoonish look that kids will undoubtedly enjoy. The included train (named "Steamer") comes with three cars: a steam engine, a log cart, and a caboose. When the train's wheels move, its smokestack moves up and down. The train also comes with a conductor action figure. Both Steamer and the conductor also appear in the included feature DVD, which gives kids a story to work within and deepens their imaginative options.

The railroad adventure begins at the Easy Rail Station by placing the train on the orange portion of the railway where it automatically aligns to the track. In general, the auto-aligning mechanism does well keeping the train on the tracks, but the train will occasionally derail when going down some of the steeper slopes. Kids can pilot the train by using an intuitive remote control, or can opt to move it around by hand. As the train traverses the track, it will make its way up a mountain, circle around loops and drive through a tunnel. There's also a working crane, where kids can load lumber and other cargo onto the cars.

Build a Railroading Network
The Timbertown Railway features interlocking track pieces that snap together easily. Although it has been built for easy assembly, the track will most likely require some adult assistance during setup. With the help of the included instructions, setup should take approximately 15 minutes. In all, the set requires six "AAA" batteries (not included) -- three for the steam engine and three for the remote control.

The Timber Railway has been designed with smaller children in mind, and older kids will quickly get bored with the railway's compact size and limited activities. However, it is an ideal starter railroad set for younger children, and will provide hours of imaginative play. The set is also compatible with the rest of the GeoTrax set -- buy them all to assemble the ultimate railroad play set.

What's in the Box
Easy Rail Station, elevated mountain with tunnel and working crane, remote control, steam engine, log cart, caboose, conductor action figure, lumber cargo, 15 pieces of track, and instructions.

Product Description

The GeoTrax Lead Train Set offers all the classic railroad play little boys love. They can become the engineers of their own imaginations with so much to do. Starting at the Easy-Rail Station, the special track area makes it so easy for them to get their RC train lined up on the tracks. Board the engineer figure into the front of the classic steam engine or on the back of the red caboose. Little boys can control the train two ways - push it along or control the action from afar with an easy-to-use RC controller. The controller features forward and reverse controls and train sound effects. Drive the train around the curve, up the hill and to the mountain. Pick up logs to keep the "wood-burning" engine going. Use the crane on top of the mountain to load it all up. The train can make its way down the winding hill and back to the Easy-Rail Station to drop off cargo and complete the trip. Set up the 15 pieces of durable, Snap-Lock track in so many ways for new adventures. It's the perfect 1st train set for the 2-year old engineer. And since GeoTrax is a system that all works together - add onto this set for even more fun.

DURABLE FUN! If I had to describe this item in two words, it would be those. We have 4 children, but our two youngest are 2 and 3. I think, finally, someone has thought up of something that doesn't have "hundreds" of little pieces, small children of all ages can play with it and actually love it. I am a busy mom of 4 who stays home now to care for my mom full time as well. This toy is so quick to put together, I take it apart at night and put it back together in the morning and it takes maybe 5 mins. out of my busy day. My 3 yr. makes different track designs thoughout the days and my 2 yr. feels like he's actually the one making the train go on, so he feels rewarded. You can see his little gears working when he watches how it's put together. With that alone, it's educational

I don't understand some people giving this item a "poor design" or "not durable" ratings. Our train set has been sat on, stepped on (remember I have 4 kids), pushed over. This track stays together well an does not fall apart easily. You actually have to "unsnap" the pieces.

I give this item a perfect 10! It's the only reason I've gotten other GeoTrax stuff... so I can add to it.

Awesome guys! Bravo!!

This is a great toy. My two year old loves it. He is able to work the remote, and likes to pull the train around the track. It isn't cheap, but considering its durability, its fairly priced.

Pros: extremely durable. exapandable/compatible with other geotrax, configurable, the hill and tunnel are cool. Simple enough for a two year old.

Cons: the track pieces are too hard for a two year old to snap together, its a little loud (with no volume). If it came with a couple other figures that would be cool considering there is a "station". Two more figures and a $50 price tag and this would be a five star review.

Battery-life is good but not great.

We have no problem with derailing. It will only derail if the hill is immediately followed by a curve (simple physics, it get going pretty fast down the hill), just put a straightaway first after the hill and it will never derail.

All in all: do not hesitate to buy, it really is a pretty cool toy, though it isn't perfect.

My 4 year old does like this train with the cool smokestack but the train design is poor. The smoke goes up and down as it moves which is neat. The train that is controlled by the remote is permanently attached to the first car of the train. The first car of the train does not lead the rest of the cars. Because of this, the first train often derails going down hills and gets my son frustrated. It's made just like the "Hauler and Big Rob," Team which we didn't keep because it derails. Not sure why they make the trains this way, it just frustrates my son. Expensive too.

Got this for Christmas 2010. My three year old has been asking for Geotrax for awhile. I was dissapointed when we opened the box and the remote didn't work. I called up the company and there was a new remote at my house in less than a week. No charge and no hassle.(they didn't make me send them the defective one or anything) I was VERY pleased with costumer service, and my three year old is happy with his train:)

Verified Purchase
My 2 1/2 year old grandson LOVES trains, so I purchased this for him for Christmas. He has played for hours with this set. First thing every morning it's, "Let's play Steamer," and you will hear that repeated several times a day. If he isn't playing with it, he is watching the DVD that came with it. The DVD is 4 different stories showing the different trains that are part of the GeoTrax team. This DVD has given "Steamer" a personality to my grandson. He re-enacts scenes when he is playing with the set. He gasps every time the "ghost train" shows up and is worried when the trains get stuck in the mud.

My grandson also enjoys his push Thomas trains. This set does have push trains available. It will meet the needs of younger children with the push trains, but at 2 1/2, he has had no trouble getting it back on track (or should I say, Trax!). Another grandparent gave him a Lionel train for children 2 1/2 and up. He enjoys and plays with the Timbertown Railway more. I don't know if it is the DVD that made the difference there, or if it is easier for him to operate. I am looking forward to expanding his set, although my daughter may object!

ETA: The train and remote quit working, Battery changes in both did nothing. My grandson used it as a push train and eventually went back to just playing with Thomas. My daughter bought the airport for him for his 3rd birthday. The day they set it up, he dropped the remote and it quit working. She then saw in the instructions that it said DO NOT DROP. Children in this age range (2-7) are going to drop things. Adults drop things. This is way too fragile for a young child and was a big disappointment.

We wouldn't have thought to purchase this toy as our 2 yo son wasn't showing a lot of interest in trains yet (just cars) but it was a gift. He loves it. This is what got him to love trains. It's good for fine motor skills and developmental skills because he has to get the train on the tracks and he puts the little cube bundle of "logs" in the crane's grip to drop into the train car, etc. I think it was focusing on playing with this train set that got our guy without much of an attention span to actually sit and pay attention to one thing for a longer period of time. And now that has extended to other toys and his books, etc. Best of all it's very durable. My son carries the train around and drops it and bangs it around. Don't hesitate to purchase this. We don't have a problem with derailing. You need to set the tracks up the way that's suggested and aim the train in the direction suggested for each set-up.
