Bought for my two year old son who really enjoys this. It is good value for money coming with two carriages (complete with coal loads) and a boat (in addition to the dock and crane itself). The magnetic lift for the crane operation works well with sufficiently strong magnets. The only negative is the way the crane attaches - it has a dowle on the bottom acting as the male part which fits into a hole in the base - it is not sufficiently tight and consequently there is a little play. However, in order for the crane to turn there obviously needs to be some movement. Overall a good buy.

Bigjigs use the same track gauge as Brio but use less plastic, more wood and charge a lot less for their products. I love the fact that this railway-canal dock is a rose-tinted reminder of a bye-gone time that, to be honest, none of us can remember. The crane is easy for small hands to operate and contains a magnet that picks up the "coal" loads via metal studs on the loads, so they can be transferred from the canal boat to the wagons and vice versa.

The only problem I had was with the vendor, Toypost. Apologies for straying "off topic" but Amazon would not allow me to publish a negative review about the vendor in the normal feedback section, claiming that I was writing a product review, so perhaps they wanted me to write a vendor review here instead! I made a previous purchase with Toypost via Amazon, for which I was given a 10% discount voucher. I then purchased this item in a subsequent order via Amazon and was refused the 10% discount on the grounds that I had not adhered to their terms & conditions, which were not published, so I could not know them. Toypost will be fully aware of the fact that it is not worth me pursuing them for a couple of quid, so they refused to comply and lost my goodwill instead.

Bigjigs toys are widely available from lots of different vendors and they do a wide range of locomotives, wagons, building, track and features such as bridges, tunnels etc. My young son loves his wooden railway and this coal dock set is one that he particularly focusses on.

Very pleased with this purchase. Bought as a gift for a 4 year old who is having great imaginative play with it. Also it's great it fits in with all his other train set pieces. Really pleased!

I bought this for my 2yr old grandson whilst the barge and coal trucks are played with the rest isn't, The crane doesn't reach the trucks or barge as the arm is too long, not a complete waste of money because he loves the barge and always plays with that. Definitley the worst of Bigjigs toys that we have (and we have a lot)

I bought this canal coal dock for my son when he was two and a year later it is still involved in so much of the activity within the wooden train track world. It comes with the main base, two carriages plus coal blocks, a canal barge and a crane.

The base features a combined section of track, a loading bay and a shed. The two carriages have short dowels sticking out to locate the coal blocks on. The crane sits in a location hole in the base and can be easily placed by a toddler. The crane was a winch mechanism with a magnetic block at the end of the string that can attach to the metal blocks in the top of the coal (and can also help in crash emergencies etc!). The canal barge fits both of the coal blocks into it and add another dimension to the games that can be had.

All parts work well and are in good proportion, solidly built and well painted. It works with all brands of wooden track including Brio and Carousel.

My three year old son loved it and it rekindled his interest in his train track as it added an interesting feature to his set.Its well made and is attractive to look at and feels nice to handle. He espcially liked the boat and has great fun chunting the coal around from boat to train. He has a little trouble with the pulley rope and magnet and sometimes gets in a tangle! At the moment he hasnt quite got the hang of turning the handle to lift the coal and just uses his hands. Overall the best feature on our track so far!

I bought this product for my 2 years' old birthday, and immediately both he and the 4 years' old were playing with the dock, without even building the rest of the track.
The toy is durable and is good fun, also it's good to have the 2 carriages, so that each child can have their own. I saw a bigger model on Amazon that was about twice the price and opted for this one instead as a better value for money option.
