excellent for the beginner
By 13468f September 5, 2015
if your new to the world of model trains, then this is for you. this was the first train set i ever got. the power-loc track provides the most basic type of track building, and removes the difficult issues of track angles the only thing that i did not like was the speed the track oxidized if left unused, though it was easy to remove the oxide with fine grit sandpaper. the coupling system works best with model power and lifelike train cars and engines.
