Solidly built car bodies, but wheels and couplers don't measure up
on October 6, 2017
Almost 3 stars because the cars are nice and solid, the set includes a huge number of little plastic items for building a display, the tracks are easy to assemble and almost always line up correctly, and the controller is easy to hook up & use.
But the couplers are thin and cars disconnect easily, and after two or three runs around the oval, the locomotive will slide diagonally and lose connection with the power source. The wheels on some of the other cars also tend to not seat completely.
If the set included more straight track, that would help.
