Why we love this

With 8 straight pieces and 17 flexible tracks, this LEGO City train tracks set is a great way to start off their LEGO train collection. These new flexible pieces are perfect for navigating around awkward obstacles and shapes - there'll be no stopping your LEGO train with this set! Please note that these tracks do not conduct electricity and therefore are not compatible with LEGO 9v trains.

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 126 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good extra tracks but expensive it was useful just found it a bit expensive, and even by buying 4 boxes of this set I wasn't able to do a nice circular rail track for my creator expert horizon train. 04 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bring back the old track sets! I think we can all agree when making a lego city or a lego layout where we plan on having a lot of trains straight track is the essential and hard to come by. Most Lego train sets come with no or very few straight track so we all come to this set. Lego track is very overpriced and I think the flexible track is not very useful, unrealistic, and looks bad. Now yes flexible can come in handy if you have a tiny spot to fill whether is a curved spot or a straight spot. But sell it separately. Flexible track does have its own set, but why doesn't straight track? I think a set with 8 straight track for $9.99 would be a life saver for those who need bulk quantities of straight track and don't need or want the flexible track. Also what ever happened to the old track sets. The double crossover set was amazing and was very popular to consumers, yet Lego discontinued it. Now to get it is $150+. Also the simple cross over track we saw in every era of track from 4.5v to 9v yet they decided not to make one in RC track form. What ever happened to the old Lego track days. I think if you just need extra track this might be a good set for you. But if you just need straight track in bulk quantities of it I can not recommend this to you. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lego train track what can you say about the best toy in the world. this set is needed to expand your lego train track. 05 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good gap filler This set is good for filling small gaps in the track, and adding strength to curves that are prone to coming undone. I made an X-crossing with four of these, and was very pleased at how it worked in a traditional figure-8 track. I also liked how they connect with the switches, so that you don't have to have a million inches of track connecting them. 10 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Flex track do serve a purpose Important note: Flex track only works well when attached to baseplates. For my current display, my straight tracks are 4 studs away from the side of the baseplate. That doesn't leave enough room for me to fit a tunnel on one baseplate. So I needed to change the track offset just for that portion of the layout. I tried using curves, but two connected curves are only 31 studs long, and I needed them to be 32 studs long. My solution was to use these flex track pieces to change the offset to 7 studs. Using 2x2 and 1x2 jumper plates, I was able to keep the flex tracks from moving while connected to a baseplate. The number of flex track pieces included in this set was the exact number I needed for each side of the tunnel. Yes, flex track is loud, but when used properly, it doesn't cause derailments, noticeable slowdowns, or anything like that. It's definitely not a suitable replacement for straight or curved tracks, but that's not what they were made for. I would even argue that they should never be used at their full radius. The only thing I don't like about this set is that you can't buy the straight tracks without buying flex tracks. Flex track is never used in large quantities, so it would be frustrating if I had to buy tons of these sets to accumulate straight tracks. If the two types of track were sold separately, I would give each a 5 star review. PS – Lego, please make RC x-crosses. 22 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good addition to your Cargo or Pass Train Adds a fair amount of track to your existing train set. The flexible tracks are nice for the option of straight or curved depending on what you need, however they don't ride as smooth as the rigid track unless they are perfectly aligned (difficult). Overall, nice expansion pack. Pricey, but not unlike most Lego products you get what you pay for; high quality, long lasting product for decades of fun. 05 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Addition The tracks are a nice addition to what I've already purchased. They fit nicely and work well with my Passenger Train. 29 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Electric trains get stuck on the Flex Track I see where LEGO is going in offering Flex Track. Though the intentions are good the unintended outcome has been not so good. I have seen on many occasions when using an electric (remote enabled) train if you are going at slow speeds or come to a stop over the Flex Track the train will get stuck. This is frustrating thus resulting in me not using Flex Track at all. Flex Tracks make building tracks harder. When using the standard curve track it helps guide our little ones to meet back to the where they started building. With Flex Track it is sometime more difficult to make a complete track. I propose this kit be changed to a combination of a few Flex Track and in its place bring back the Standard Curve track. The flex track is great for those master builds of creative bends but for the novice or beginner its not a good idea. LEGO, please bring back the Standard Curve track. Cheers 14 November 2014
