Rated 1 out of 5 by kenzie Worst purchase EVER
You get fewer track pieces for your money. $25 for a 2’ X 2’ circle or you can buy the old track style for $15 and make a 2’ X 3’ circle. Better yet 9V track with the AC adaptor was only a couple of dollars more then the old track style and it worked the best. The 9V with AC is something I still use, I use it with my daughter now and someday with my grand kids too. You don’t have to buy batteries when they go bad, or charge them every couple of hours. The point that I’m trying to get across is, you can have hours of fun and save money in the end with the AC adaptor. I have had the 9V with AC track for over 15 years and with continue too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PASSENGERTRAIN321 They don't stay put,no traction,expensive, UGLY!
one of the many trains i have is the the maersk train it works ok on this track,but basicly evey train does not cooperate when you start them up on this track,they will not move that is due to the little traction these track provide.
THESE TRACKS LOOK TERRIBLE. when you put all of these together and do not seperate them they these tracks move alot.also they do not stick to a baseplate.
i am dissapointed lego got RID of the old straight and curved and replaced it with this stuff. i know with straight and curved you ended up with lots of curved track but why did'nt lego just sell straight and curved seperately.
I am not impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bandicoo Flexible
I've stayed away from these mainly because most of my train layout is 9v. When I purchased the Passenger Train (7938) it came with some of these. Because of where I was putting the Passenger train I wouldn't have been able to do it without the flexible train track. I even had to buy more.
4 flex tracks = 1 straight track. With 64 pieces it's equal to 16 straight tracks. Using them is a bit more tricky then using standard track. They have to be secured better, and in more places. If you have trouble connecting the track to a base plate, the train probably wont run right on it anyway. They cost over a 1/3 more than then standard tracks, but that's to be expected.

This track is great for putting the finishing touches on a custom track layout. When the tracks don't quite meet, these little guys are great for making that final connection. If you're using these as your only type of track, you're going to be disappointed -- but I really don't think that's what these were designed for. If you do that, you'll have to put a bunch of 1xN on the side of the rail to keep the track straight. And for the folks that are complaining the flex track is the same radius as the normal size piece....well yes, of course they will be, unless you use them as small fractional glue pieces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Turner A Bad Buy for Lego Train Lovers
This was a very bad idea from the start. It's good that it can be broken down into fourths, but it's not too good if you have the regular RC track. The first problem is the trains.
On this track, the Emerald Night train sometimes stalls when going over the flexible track. And the new RC Passenger Train peels out for a while before starting to go. It's probably not good for the wheels, either.
Another problem is the realistic-ness of it. I think that Lego came out with this set to make larger turns and smaller track peices available. It's hard to keep the large turns from moving around, especially when a train goes over it. And chances are that you won't need all of the peices. It was a good idea, but not worth it.

This is a great product. It has made it easier for the kids to build complex track geometries which before would only have been possible with a lot of adult help.
The flextrack is best when used as the 'glue' between sections of normal tracks. The ride over these tracks is bumpy and have led to derailments.
-Lots of play value for the dollar
-Expands the possibilities of your layout
-64 pieces go a long way when used in conjunction with normal track pieces
-Minimum radius same as regular curved track
-Non-electric? (I'm a RC guy myself)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubs Good product
I picked up several track kits already, which had some straight and curved pieces as well as some flex track. My boy (7) likes the flex track the most since it is easier for him to work with and he can change the direction of the track just by bending it rather than disassembling the pieces. That's why I picked up this kit and will continue to pick up flex track as needed. I've seen some reviews that complain about frequent derailments using the flex track, but I've found that as long as you don't create too sharp of curves then they work just fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by emet horrible purchase
the flexible train track comes with 64 pieces thats16 train tracks a regular RC lego train track comes 16 pieces in a smaller box and the flexible train track is in a bigger box it could' ve been in the same size box , what a waste of cardboard. the box is not exiting like all other lego sets. when i connected it to my rc train track and started to play with my power function emrald night train the train didn't work it wasn't the remote it was the track the flexible train track has so many cacks and holes in it.
