Hard to connect the rails.
on December 17, 2016
The auto reversing train I s a neat idea for small spaces. Escpecially when there is not enough room for 180 degree curves. The train kind of fits in scale with the Lemax village buildings a brings a bit of life to any Christmas village.
The biggest pain is the setup. The tracks are hard to connect and the connecting points are of bad quality. If they are not lined up perfectly there will be hump causing the trolley to derail. I had to use my extra strong reading glasses to line up the very tiny clamps and rails since they don't line up very well. The require slight bending to exactly fit. I worked with other railways such as Märklin before and the Bachman trains and rails don't even come close to the quality. But once the tracks are connected perfectly it works fine.
Also be careful when using that fluffy snow wool. Don't get it close to the tracks. The wheels like to wind this stuff up then get clogged up and the trolley won't move. I had to clean them up. The bottom pate of the motor can be removed to take the axles out and clean them up.
And when you want extend the track be sure to buy the auto reversing tracks. I added 4 more curves to mine.
If the track pieces wouldn't be so hard to connect I would have given it 5 stars.
