This paticular set has the older, black roadbed with steel rails, so they need to be cleaned more than the newer slightly more expensive nickel silver. I bought this to expand my son’s train set that we got at a swap meet, and it says it is supposed to come with remote switches (AKA turnouts, points.) but when we opened it it came with manual sitches. It also said it was supposed to some with 2 bumpers, we didn’t get those. Maybe that was a packing error, but Bachmann was nice and sent us the bumpers. Overall, a great EXPANSION set. Not for people looking for a starter set, unless they are getting a starter set with this. If I haven’t stressed this enough I have heard reviews about this set saying “This set doesn’t come with a train, it is only track” That is what it is supposed to be, not a complete set, but an EXPANSION set, designed to compliment a starter set. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 15 of 15 people found the following review helpful Great addition to the starte set, July 19, 2011 By Scrapbooking Mom (Ct) – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: This review is from: Steel Alloy EZ Layout Expander Set (Toy) I have read previous reviews about this expansion not having electric swichers. I ordered mine and the swichers are electric. The wires connect to the power supply on the accy side. when switching you flip the switch and tap the button and it works great. This is how they are supposed to work. If you hold the button down to long you will burn it out, just a one second tap is all that is needed. If you want to see how it works please visit BUBBA0725 on YOUTUBE and watch the short video of Nick’s first train set with 3 switchers and the expansion st. If you have any questions please post them there and I will answer the best I can. 5 star review on this product from me. Happy modeling! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 22 of 29 people found the following review helpful Average Train for Beginners, January 6, 2009 By Justa Thought (USA) – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Steel Alloy EZ Layout Expander Set (Toy) I would caution anyone who thinks their young child 5-7 could do this on their own. You have to be careful to get the pieces in just right or you will break them. If this is going to be a train for a child going through a phase then it is fine but this is definately not heirloom quaility. What is these days? My son is able to play with his grandfather’s 50+ year old train but that won’t be the case with this one. 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.
