4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun !, 13 Jan. 2013
A smashing first train set, which my 7-year old son had enjoyed far more than I expected he would. The addition of tanks and soldiers really elevates the play value of the set; he gets a lot of fun making up different games with them.

The quality of the set is good, particularly the wagons. The set includes large radius curves so needs quite a large space to set-up. The controller is a bit on the cheap side but works well enough. I think this set is going out of production now which is a shame. If you in the market for a train set for a child, I would definitely recommend finding a set if you can. An excellent purchase!

1.0 out of 5 stars Another poor show from Character Bulding, 13 Jan. 2013
These are cheaply designed and made products with poor instructions. Once built it will constantly fall apart unless you glue it all together. The net result is that both Dad and son have got fed up with fixing it and it is in pieces at the bottom of the toy box.

Definitely not recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not up to Lego standards - buy plenty of glue as well !!, 13 Jan. 2013
This a poor substitute for Lego. The pieces are not manufactured to the same standard, they don't stay together without glue, and the instructions are pretty poor. Given the price of the Character Building items I would have expected much better. Sadly not. I have had to build this twice now for my 7-year old son, the second time with copious amounts of glue. The first time it fell apart after 5 minutes, not impressed. I can't say I gained much enjoyment from building it, the design is pretty poor. Hopefully my son will get some fun out of using it now it is glued together, although the Daleks included are not as advertised.

Pretty poor overall, I won't be buying any more of these.
