This train table is an excellent set for any child's playroom. One main piece of the table was cracked when we opened the packaging, but luckily my husband is handy and added a metal brace on the underside so it's strong but not visible. It was Christmas Eve so no way we could try returning it! Some of the smaller pieces required assembly as well which we hadn't expected. That made the process take much longer, but it was simple and definitely worth it in the end.
This is a nice train set for the price, if you are comparing it to the Thomas and Brio sets. Although not all the tracks are completely the same, it did fit together in the configurations provided without problem. I was sad to see that my son's metal Thomas trains did not work at all on these tracks, only the larger or wooden variety. He didn't seem to mind though- the set came with several of its own trains. My only real complaint with the set is that the supports that hold the raised track up are really flimsy. My son just kept knocking it all down every time he drove a train on it. In the end, we had to use Liquid Nails and glue the whole set together. Now it is perfect for playing!
Bought this for my son to replace existing, old train set. Overall it is a decent train set. It is a smaller train than what I was expecting but nice. Runs smooth and is fast; stays on track fairly well. There were several small pieces (lamp post) that must be punched out from a plastic tab holder; smaller pieces break easy if not extra careful when trying to remove from tab. The small automobiles have wheels that snap in and do not stay the greatest. Overall we are pleased with the purchase.
