Thomas the Tank Engine is powered by one AA battery (not included) and pulls a cargo car along the tracks, going through the tree trunk tunnel and up and down hills. At one section of the tracks, Thomas can stop at a logging mill structure and unload his log onto a conveyor belt powered by his own spinning wheels. Once the log makes it to the top of the belt, the log is then split and can be loaded back onto Thomas' cargo car. Another fun feature of the train set is the speedy zip-line bridge. This exciting bridge consists of a platform that glides across a trackless section when Thomas and his cargo car roll onto it. As soon as it reaches the other side, Thomas and his cargo car disembark automatically and continue to amble along the tracks.

Motorized Train Set Encourages Imaginative Play
Thomas and Friends Zip, Zoom and Logging Adventure train set is based on the DVD movie Misty Island Adventure, featuring Thomas the Tank Engine. This engaging motorized train set inspires kids to use their imaginations to create new adventure scenarios for Thomas the Tank Engine as he and his cargo car move along the whimsical set of tracks. Designed to encourage active, creative play, the Thomas and Friends train set features multiple points along the tracks where kids can interact with the tracks and buildings to change Thomas' course, send him speeding along a zip-line bridge, or split a log that can be carried in his cargo car.
Although no tools are required for assembly, the complexity of the track arrangement requires adult participation. Track sections are designed to fit together, end to end, like puzzle pieces and can be configured into one of two track layouts. Each of these layouts is illustrated in the instruction pamphlet, and track sections are numbered to help make assembly faster and easier. Care should be taken to insure that the Log Mill structure is securely fastened to the tracks so that the conveyer works when Thomas' engine stops to unload his log.

Thats exactly what this train provided.
Before I bought the item, I read some of the negative reviews. And then there were some positive ones. So I gave it a try.
The main reason this toy worked is because my son is NOT AN ADULT. My son likes fiddling with it constantly. Do you think my son wants a train that runs perfectly around the track and never needs to be touched? Well, as contrary as it may seem, the answer is no. My son wants to manipulate that train every 30 seconds.
A lot of the poor reviews come from an adult's perception of "hey this isn't perfect." They are 100% right. It's not perfect. But its imperfections can make it nearly perfect for my little boy.
The real scoop:
1) Sometimes the track switching didn't work, sometimes it did. When it didn't, it gave my son something extra to do. He doesn't mind when it doesn't switch, this gives "little Mr. Engineer" something to work on.
2) The conveyor works well, but my 2.5 yo doesn't quite understand how to use it. You have to a) have Thomas stop at the first position. b) leave Thomas there as the log climbs c) when the log goes over the top you flip the switch so Thomas moves to the second position d) you cut the wood e) you flip the second position switch and off thomas goes f) as Thomas goes around the track my son has to flip BOTH position switches back to "stop" so that he can repeat the process. Honestly, he doesn't get it right very often. Its really too complex for him. But as strange as it sounds, if the train ran completely autonomously and perfectly he wouldn't enjoy it half as much.Read more ›
This set on the other hand breaks all that. Each piece has a specific length and curvature that isn't standard and so only fits in a specific place on the layout. The instructions come with two example layouts but good luck trying to build your own closed loop track.
The switches on the track are poorly designed and the train will climb over them most of the times and continue straight ahead. Others it will slightly make it turn but that will only result in derailing the train. I am yet to see it completely make a turn.
The logging house doesn't always work with the log being jammed or stuck at the top. The slide is off center so when the train reaches the bottom it doesn't align with the connecting track and derails almost all the times.
We are happy with our other trackmaster systems as they allow many different track layouts and the trains run on it without derailing. This system is quite the opposite. While the tracks can be combined with other trackmaster tracks, you won't want to. As said before, the tracks in this system are in off-standard lengths which makes it hard to create closed loops different from the one on the box. The track pieces are also twisted, bent and sloped so you need to use the raisers in a very specific configuration for it to lay straight on the ground.
The price for the set is interesting (compared to other trackmaster sets) but I'd recommend avoiding this one. Instead, buy a train and a couple of expansion packs for about the same price.
