NEWER TRACKMASTER TRAINS WON'T WORK!!!
on March 28, 2016
DO NOT BUY THIS SET FOR TRACKMASTER TRAINS MADE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS!! My 3 year old son is absolutely crazy about Thomas trains and we have acquired most of the trackmaster trains they make over the course of the last 2 years. He needed some good track for them to run on and also loves things that make train sounds so I bought this. Unfortunately it is meant for the older trains because the newer ones have trouble going on this track and also get stuck when they go over the bump at the station EVERY TIME! There isn't enough grip for these wheels on the track and on the newer trains, there is a plastic piece that hangs down farther that will cause them to hang up on this set. It did nothing but make my son really mad after he was so excited to get it! Very disappointed. Thomas products are very much like Apple in this regard. The little Sodor station and sounds are really cute and work well I'm sure with the right trains. Buyer beware!
