Unlike other wooden track these are not all one piece - the nub that hooks into the corresponding slot is a plastic piece glued into the track. No big deal...except the nub is too short to work with other tracks - you can't get it to fit - no matter how much you try to force it - it will not work with other track...other pieces will hook up to the ikea set - but you can't hook the ikea set up to other track pieces...
I've now tried with track pieces from three different manufacturers - all bought on amazon - none of the ikea pieces will hook up to them. All those hook up together, but none work with the ikea ones.
Quite a shame since this otherwise this would be a wonderful set. The train that comes with it is really good quality too (and that does work on any other track) - so that's great.
If you're only looking for just one set & have no plans to expand or anything - this will be perfect you. Otherwise - I suggest looking elsewhere (which I hate saying, since I really am a diehard ikea fan!!).
Now I finally discovered that there are 23 possible layouts you can make using all the pieces of this set. Indeed, you read correctly, TWENTYTHREE! Just amazing, isn't it?
The caveat is that sometimes you need to strut pieces, but it is possible to position the pieces of the bridge so that no more than 2 curved piece need to be strutted. I noticed that struts for this set can be bought. (I used books as a kid, though.) Here is the list of the 23 layouts (without counting rotations and mirror images):
S = Straight, A = Anticlockwise curve, C = Clockwise curve, * can use bridge as consecutive straights.
AA. [SSAAAAAASSCCCCCC] - figure 8
BB. [SSAAAACCAAAASSAA] - figure L
CC. [SSAAACAACAAASSAA] - figure M
Thanks to John Graham-Cummings (the picture shows 9 layouts he found) for inspiring me to finally complete this list.
There is one issue of the tunnel not being able to let the thomas brand engines go under it. Since my daughter has no idea who thomas is, she was very happy with the trains that came with the track. And if you buy extra tracks, you don't need the bridge. (:
The only thing that really bothers me is that when you choose the classic 8-layout, bigger trains like the ones from Thomas and friends do not fit under the little bridge. That is annoying as it is advertised as fitting with most other train sets - this is only true for the tracks, not for the trains themselves. Fortunately, my toddler does not mind that we cannot use this layout. I have now bought a separate tunnel as my daughter really likes tunnels, so we don't have to use the bridge as a tunnel.
All in all, I am very pleased with this set and would definitely recommend this as a starter set or as an addition to any existing sets.
