All Aboard for Imagination
With nearly 100 wooden track sections and supports, and over 30 accessories, including a freight train, passenger train, and suspension bridge, the Melissa & Doug Wooden Railway Set is ideal for the young train engineer. Designed for children ages three and older, the set includes easy-to-follow instructions for four different track configurations, giving children hours of playtime as they build the perfect layout. Every track piece and accessory in this solid wood set is sanded to a smooth finish, and when screws are used, they are set below the surface of the wood, providing a smooth surface for little hands. The flatbed truck allows your child to replicate the real-world transfer of cargo from the train to the truck, and then on to the neighborhood stores for the final delivery. The set also includes train engineers who can help direct traffic as the trains come in and out of the station. To load cargo on and off the trains, the set includes two magnetized crane assemblies — a tower frame and an A-frame — that each feature a lever for raising and lowering the cargo. It also includes a suspension bridge, trestle bridge, a five-way switch, and a roundhouse engine shed where the engines can park when not in use. Several trees and road signs are also included.

Six-piece freight train with cargo provides hours of loading and unloading fun.
With the exception of the durable plastic uprights on the suspension bridge, the plastic wheels and steel rivets on the trains and truck, and the small, steel screws that hold many of the accessories together, the Wooden Railway Set is made entirely of solid wood that will last. Every track piece and accessory is sanded to a smooth finish, and when screws are used, they are set below the surface of the wood, providing a smooth surface for little hands.
The track pieces snap snugly and easily into one another with no excessive force or tools required. With over 100 track pieces and bridge supports to work with, the biggest challenge for your child will be to keep all the pieces organized during their building process.
One piece of advice for parents: add the Melissa & Doug Multi-Activity Table, so your child can easily build out the set and you can keep the pieces contained.
Freight Train, Passenger Train and Flatbed Truck
The Wooden Railway Set includes a six-piece freight train with cargo, a four-piece passenger train, and a three-piece flatbed truck with cargo. The trains and the truck each feature durable plastic wheels held to the bodies with smooth, steel rivets.
The flatbed truck allows your child to replicate the real-world transfer of cargo from the train to the truck, and then on to the neighborhood stores for the final delivery. The set also includes train engineers who can help direct traffic as the trains come in and out of the station.
Several Accessories for Added Fun
To load cargo on and off the trains, the set includes two magnetized crane assemblies -- a tower frame and an A-frame -- that each feature a lever for raising and lowering the cargo. It also includes a suspension bridge, trestle bridge, a five-way switch, and a roundhouse engine shed where the engines can park when not in use. Several trees and road signs are also included.
Old-Fashioned, Energy-Free Fun
With no electrical parts, flashing lights, or battery-operated motors, the Wooden Railway Set is designed to offer your child imaginative playtime. The tracks and trains are designed to be compatible with most popular wooden tracks, so you may be able mix and match with pieces of other sets you may already have.

I could not find another set with as many "goodies" as this one has (bridges, supports, roundhouse, two trains, etc), all in one box and WITHOUT a bunch of "extras" that a young child won't play with. Most of the high piece count sets I saw online were 50% people, trees and signs -- but this one is mostly all track, bridges and usable accessories! It comes with 2 trains and a little semi with a 5th wheel trailer that runs on the track as well -- very cute!
The layout plans they send you (4 in the box) are super helpful to combine designs with a little time and effort or use their designs. We spent about $20 at Menards and bought a 4x4 sheet of pre-sanded plywood to anchor this set to. The hubby routed the corners and edges smooth, and trimmed it down to about 4x3' to fit the train set. Then he predrilled and counter sunk screws into the track and the supports so everything is secured down. This is absolutely PERFECT setup for a 2 year old boy being, well, a 2 YEAR OLD! He's rough and still learning fine motor skill control, so it's much more fun to play on a set that doesn't fall over with clumsy, rough play!
So my hubby made some extra risers out of 2x4's and he built a "high rise" section of track to make one big "roller coaster" leg that went from end to end, sending the trains down the hill at a pretty fast clip, and our son giggles when they derail on the other end from such high speed!
We also purchased the Mountain Tunnel Accessory Set that looks not only realistic (way better than Imaginarium from Toys R Us and others we looked at), but also seperates into two pieces: the top comes off to make another tunnel, the bottom piece has two tunnels that criss-cross. Our son LOVES THIS! He can take the top piece off and put it over other places of the track all by himself. It's pretty sturdy, thick and hard plastic, but not indestructible of course. It's stood up to his rough play so far, and we're VERY pleased with the quality and durability. Amazon was the best price and shipping (not free when I bought it) that I found online.
The two trains included with this set run perfectly around the track -- the wheels/axles are placed at the very ends of the cars, which is absolutely necessary in design for the cars to go smoothly over the up or downward curves of hills. Otherwise, the ends of the car will catch on the track and the train will separate. We found this out when we used the big diesel train (3 piece set from Imaginarium @ Toys R Us) on the hills. While the diesel engine and the 3 axle car work fine, the 2 axle car catches because the axles are set farther in from the end. Melissa & Doug sell a very similar set and it will likely have the better design with no problems catching on the hills -- so I recommend their set over the Toys R Us one I bought.
EXCELLENT BUY, EXCELLENT TOY -- ALL the bells and whistles of the more expensive sets but at an affordable price and still a high quality set! Plus it is compatible with the big name cars and track (Thomas, Brio, etc). There are multiple manufacturers for THomas, however, and some of them have different sizes than others, so you have to watch. But if it fits on the regular size Thomas track, the cars AND the Thomas track are compatible with this set -- so very handy. (We did a lot of research into this before buying!)
The roundhouse is VERY GOOD QUALITY, and every bit as good as the Thomas one we saw in Toys R Us. Our local store has a train set (secured to a table) set up at the store for the kids to play with -- so we got a lot of ideas on setup from that, and also could have a hands on quality comparison. ALL THE PARTS to this set are good quality for a wooden set and we are absolutely, completely satisfied with this purchase.
So we recommend for the youngest engineers, that you anchor this set to a big piece of plywood or something, but just use screws and counter sink them, so they're out of the way but you can take it apart later when the child is older and can handle rearranging it and putting together the track by himself. Our little guy can do this and we have other track that he can put together and play with, but the main set is MUCH MORE FUN for him with it secured, until he's bigger and more coordinated!
We already have a little play table for him, so we made a small frame on the bottom of the trainset board to fit snuggly over the table we had and keep it from sliding or moving around. We can move this set to the floor or on the table, and even me, THE WIFE, can pick it up and move it without too much effort!
We added our customer pictures to the product images.
Best of all, you can build the exact display shown on the box and still have leftover track! No disappointment!
My only complaint is that one of the little trains that came with it keeps losing a wheel. Not such a big deal for us, because we bought Thomas the Train engines to use instead (yes, they fit on the track just fine). This set is supposed to be compatible with Brio trains too, but we haven't tried those yet.
#1. It's hard to keep the train in the track. There are many reasons why (woobly wheels and a track that's not quite deep enough) but the biggest one I found was the freight cars and passenger cars are too big. They hit their edges going around bends. This causes them to bind against one another and they come off the track. This is pretty easy to fix. The freight cars hardly need anything. Just a few hits on each corner of the car with a wood file and some paint and that fixes that. The passenger cars are a bit harder. The problem is they hit at the top and it takes more than a few hits with a file. Not hard to do, however unless you are very good with a file, you can make it look ugly. If are are good at wood working it's a piece of cake. But once you give these cars some added clearance they no longer bind when going around curves on the track. Don't forget to repaint after you file.
#2 The stays (towers, piers, whatever you want to call them) for the elevated tracks are very poorly done. I don't know about you, but my little one has trouble not knocking over things when he plays. These things fall over just by breathing on them. I solved this problem by doubling each one and holding them together with rubber bands. Of course you have to be sure you have enough depending on your layout, but it's very doable.
#3. The problem is the stays are also too low. If you try to run the train under the brides or elevated track, it just barely makes it. In fact depending on what you are setting your track up on, it might hit. I ended up making spacers out of 1/4" pegboard. Worked great.
#4. The transfer crane does not want to go down. I solved this by popping open the bell and adding some washers in there to give it more weight. That solved that problem.
#5. The standard crane works great lifting, but not much on turning. It really needs a weighted bottom and a little graphite in there.
#6. The trees and signs fall down very easy if you setup on carpet. I had to make some stands for all of them.
#7.Some of the tracks do not line up on the turn-about. So if you are coming up to it, it'll hit on the bottom of the train. If you are coasting down a ramp, it's a sudden stop at the bottom. It's like the turn about is about 1/8" too thick material compared to the track pieces. I fixed this with a little cardboard taped to the bottom of the tracks that mate up with the turn-about.
It's not all doom and gloom. The wood is very nice looking and they give you a lot of great pieces. I had no trouble creating some really great layouts. They supply gender changers and lots of good pieces. When it's all setup it really looks very nice. It looks very expensive from about 5' away. Once you start to play with it, you realize it's not that well done, but still fun for the little ones.
I paid just over $100 and at that price I think it's over priced when you consider how many things I had to fix to get it reliable. Honestly if all my issues were solved from the manufacturer, I'd consider $100 a bargain for this set. Just to me if you spend $100 or more you should not have to do the final fit and finish on a product..
