This review is from: Bachmann Trains Snap – Fit E – Z Track Steel Alloy World’s Greatest Hobby Track Pack (Toy) Backman EZ track works well, however one should note there are two (2) different version available from Bachmann There is a steel rail version with BLACK roadbed, and there is a Silver/Nickel rail version with GRAY roadbed. Of the two, the preferred version chosen by those in the know is the Silver/Nickel rails.Why, because it suffers less from oxidation and bad electrical connectivity. The Steel rails with Black roadbed (This review) is identical except for the type of rails used. This unit features:Nine 9″ Straights Two Right TurnoutsOne 9″ Terminal/Rerailer Two Hayes BumpersOne 9″ Rerailer Four Switch Wires (Green)Twenty 18″ Radius Curves Two Termnal Wires (Red)Two 3″ Straights One DVDTwo Left Turnouts Note:If you are planning to run passenger trains (longer cars), the 18 inch radius curves may be too tight and it will cause derailments. Personally, I have run these rails with 1920’s – 1950’s vintage heavyweight passenger cars and except for one car from Walthers, they worked perfectly.The Walthers baggage car requires a 22 inch radius.The modern stainless steel 72 foot (HO scale) passenger cars require the 22 inch radius curves as well.

McCullough – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Bachmann Trains Snap – Fit E – Z Track Steel Alloy World’s Greatest Hobby Track Pack (Toy) My son and I have been putting together a 4×8 train table with full layout and landscaping. After a number of years getting various train sets and track options for HO scale, we decided to go with the Bachman Snap Fit EZ Track Pack. We’ll keep the other track sets as spares (you can get adapters for them) but the Bachman set made the layout consistent and works well with specialized options. We found it’s definitely the way to get the set rolling. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 31 of 33 people found the following review helpful Bachmann Track Pack the Best Completer Set, February 6, 2012 By No More Muffin Top! – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Bachmann Trains Snap – Fit E – Z Track Steel Alloy World’s Greatest Hobby Track Pack (Toy) Bachmann makes three completer sets. We were a bit confused which one to buy, so I did a spreadsheet comparing components. The Track Pack is the very best deal BY FAR – you get the most track for your money, hands down, and Amazon.com’s price beat everything on ebay as well, so I liked avoiding the stress of bidding. We found the best bang for our buck by buying the 14-pc pier set separately, instead of as part of another completer set that had a train station (my kids don’t pay that much attention to accessories, they are so into track, track, and more track!). With their original starter train set that they got for Christmas (just a circle track), the 14 pc pier set, and this track pack, they were able to build a 3-leaf clover set up with a bridge to go over and under, and an additional fourth “leg” of track going out to two separate bumpers where they park for the night. The switches included in the set are THE BEST and my two boys have so much fun switching their train from one track to another. I think switches and bridges made all the difference for my boys – the little circle was lame after about an hour! We spent $50 on their original Christmas set that came with the train, and the boys paid for the rest from their savings fun accounts: $80 (Track Pack including shipping) and $18 (14-pc Pier set, also from Amazon.com,including shipping), and I think the boys are going to content (not to mention a bit broke!) for a very long time! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
