Can I buy additional matching track for this train set? I bought the set recently for my 4 year old grandson but would like to make the track more interesting than the standard oval.

Huge disappointment for Grandson, total waste of money. Not fit for purpose. So cheaply made it resembles something out of a Christmas cracker. Hornby are a disgrace for marketing this with their name

Great for the price

This set is superb... for the price it is. I got it for my 4-year old who loves it. The pieces click together easily, the train is easy to control and it will run on other 00-gauge track with battery power (2 x AA batteries). However... the track is cheap plastic, the box is cheap plastic and the scenery is cheap plastic, which of course contributes to the whole set being cheap! Another thing to note is that the train's turning mechanism isn't designed like other Hornby trains of the same size, and we've found it sometimes comes off the track on anything less than 3rd radius corners. Overall, a very good product for the price it is.

A great set for children or hobbyists!

As a lifelong fan of Hornby, I was looking forward to giving this set a try. As soon as I opened it and got a look at it, I could tell that it was nicely made.

The track looks like standard Hornby track, but is all plastic with no metal rails. It does snap together and hold well.

The station and tunnel are nice thickness of card, and fold together nicely with tabs that fit well into the slots.

There are some nice signals and overhead catenary posts to station round the oval, not a lot of them but enough to put round for a nice look.

The train itself is built well and is a steady, fairly quiet and smooth runner. It's a lot of fun!

Overall, it's a nice start for a child or even a nice addition to anyone's Hornby collection!... Read more
