These are a really obvious, simple product. But they are ideal for building a really big railway. Existing ramps and bridges can be made more solid, and they can also be used to elevate other sections of track - aerial bends, anyone?
Before this, the bridges we had (not Bigjigs but an inferior brand) collapsed whenever our little engineer went near. Now they stay up nice and solid. And that means a lot less crawling on the floor for Daddy too!

A simple addition to the track and other components, but in raising the track it introduces another feature to it. I have not seen this for sale in any toy shop locally, only on the packaging of another track pack. My 3 year old reviewer thinks they are good addition to his layout and has given them 5 stars.

We had a red suspension bridge for a wooden train track that had risers with it, but found the suspension bridge to be awkward to pass trains through. So I bought these blocks to replace the bridge. They certainly solved the problem and add the potential for track to be laid over the top of other track. Trains can happily pass underneath the track too. They are very robust blocks with a framework design on the sides, the only negative so far is that if you knock the track and it is on a slightly slippery surface then they can move perhaps some sticky back felt on the bottom might solve this!!
Overall a great addition to any wooden compatible track, although you might need to buy the risers sold separately.
