Big flaw in road design
on 1 June 2012
The concept of this product is great but there is a huge flaw in the road design - the curves are not double sided. This means it is not at all flexible as far as layout. It only fits together in one configuration which even I had trouble with using the diagram so my son had no chance. The train set is fine, not great quality but as I didn't expect it to be I wasn't disappointed. The road on the other had is better quality but is far less fun and may as well be a solid piece. Out of 6 curves 5 turn the same way! We also had a separate piece for train and track that loads/unloads with a crane but it couldn't fit into this set because the road section was on the wrong side! SUCH a shame this great idea is let down by BigJigs either not thinking of making the curves double sided or being too cheap to do so.
