Best-priced figure 8 set on the market. Includes an exclusive stone bridge, water tower and cargo car along with Thomas, Sir Topham Hatt and more. Assembled set measures 42 x 22"."
Little conductors will have loads of fun with this high-quality figure-eight railroad set from Thomas & Friends. Made of wood, the track features an elevated bridge in the center and a water tower where Thomas can re-fuel; the "water" rises and falls with flicks of the spout. Sir Topham Hatt and a red cargo car keep Thomas company. Other items in the 25-piece set include a railroad-crossing sign, a stop sign, and a tree. The instructions clearly diagram how to assemble the track. The box has a handle and makes a good carrying case. --Andy BoyntonSee all Product description

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It's easy to assemble, seems fairly durable, although a couple of the connectors have small chips already. This set is EXCELLENT for developing motor skills, spacial skills, and problem solving as I anticipate they will eventually start creating their own configurations when we get more track.
My biggest complain is related to the bridge. It falls off super easily, and not all trains fit under it, especially from the supposedly compatible "Early Engineers" line which is made by the same manufacturer. (Maybe they just meant the tracks will connect). Thankfully, the 2 year old seems to be figuring out how to put it back on himself instead of crying for me to fix it every 3 minutes.
I also purchased the Rock and Roll Quarry set, which DID in fact connect to these tracks, but as I stated in another reviewThomas and Friends Wooden Railway - Early Engineers Rock N Roll Quarry Set, even though the tracks connect, the train cannot roll smoothly between this original track and the poorly designed accessory.... the direction of that track just doesn't do what it's supposed to do, so you actually waste the wooden tracks connecting to the Quarry add-on.
The talking "Take Along" trains by Fisher Price are significantly smaller, they sort of work on this track, but derail easily because only one side fits in the wheel wells.
In summary- good basic set, just be careful getting accessories to make sure they truly are compatible or work the way they are supposed to.
Sidenote: This was the first item out of my final Christmas order from Amazon to arrive. Amazon did well.
Boy was I impressed. When I unpacked the box and helped her build the set, I looked at each wood piece. Everything has been finely sanded and laser etched with "train track" markings. I was expecting decent quality, but frankly, I was blown away. Even though the Thomas branded products are higher in price, you do get what you pay for. Everything else such as Thomas himself, the trees and train track signs, and even the water tower look wonderful, and are well built to withstand day to day playing.
I hope to purchase the expansion track set in the next 6-12 months, and a table so that it's easier to play standing up.If you do decide to buy this item, I am certain you will be pleased with the quality and finish of the product.
