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.
With the included easy-to-follow visual instructions, the set can be built out in numerous ways, giving children hours of immersive play time as they build the perfect configuration.

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!Read more ›
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.
--> Wheels are wobbly on all of the trains and do not stay on the track well. This is not an issue with the Thomas trains.
--> Paint is not particularly durable. These trains show more wear after a week of use than the Thomas trains do being several months older.
--> Detail is lacking, there is no comparison to the Thomas pieces. Roundhouse, crane, and other structures are very plain, no texture to the tracks and straight track pieces are flat on the underside whereas the Thomas track reverses to be road.
--> Crane/cargo lift doesn't lower with the crank, you have to grab the string and pull it out. It is also assembled and glued crooked so it barely slides on the dowels.
--> Suspension bridge is also not straight and acts like a teeter totter as you try to pass trains over it.
--> At least half of the provided layout ideas don't transfer from the paper to the real wooden track so well. Fit and function isn't quite right with all the pieces.
This set is still a very good value at the price Amazon is offering it at - similar Thomas sets I've seen were at least 5 times the price. I would still buy this set again, just be realistic about what you are buying, especially if you are already familiar with the Thomas trains/sets.
1. You need a train table, Melissa and Doug make one.
2. Shop, Shop, Shop around; there are other table/train sets out there that you might prefer for the same price or cheaper.
3. This set is entirely compatable with the other major train brands, including Chuggington [unless you make a low overpass]
4. Even though I own 3 Thomas sets, this set fills in pieces that I need.
5. The track is great: Double sided except the strait pieces, fits togther well [some reports of defects in other posts] You can use a railway tie stamp if desired.
6. This track gives lots that I am missing and thus saves me money including:
a. A great round house, yes there are others better, but much more expensive. This one is solid, wood, and looks great, fits inside my Thomas round about set.
b. V-shaped connector track for my round house to go into one train track
c. Lots of male-male and female-female connectors.
d. A Golden Gate suspension bridge with two male sides [no biggie with the adapters] and allows Chuggington sized trains.
e. Many switch tracks, both male and female.
f. A huge bag of bridge supports. Did I mention huge? I like making double tall overpasses for my Chuggers.
g. A double switch track.
h. A Large magnetic crane. Yes many products are better, all are more expensive and this one gets the job done.
i. A crane that runs on risers. Again very nice.
j. A Garden bridge.
k More track than I can use considering my Thomas sets. Plenty to fill a train table.
l. A turn table. Good quality.
7. Ok folks, I get it; You need Sure clips. I police up my table daily but yeah they would be useful.
8. Two great well detailed trains a nice bonus.
