Adding some flexible tracks to your LEGO City train system will put a huge smile on your kiddo's face. The LEGO City Trains Tracks 60205 lets you and your cutie put together 8 straight tracks, 4 curved tracks and 8 flexible tracks to make playtime super-adventurous. The set contains 20 pieces of bricks and is the perfect supplement to your existing LEGO City and LEGO trains sets. Help your child connect the tracks to the existing sets, so the train will have a longer railway track to explore. Straight tracks or curved tracks, building them will be oodles of fun for everyone. Include some Minifigures in the train and voila, you'll have passengers on board too.
I bought these tracks so I could extend the Disney Station & Train #71044 and happy with purchase. I just wish you could purchase the tracks separately as I only used the straight tracks to extend the Disney tracks. I am left with the curved & flexible pieces that at present I won’t be using. Looking at my set-up if I want to extend it further I only would require more straight pieces but I won’t be buying this set just to get 8 straight tracks. Lego, please consider letting us purchase individual pieces. I would gladly purchase them separately but won’t buy a set just to get a few more pieces.
good quality, but track bundles should be split up

I love my lego trains. All the train sets come with a bunch of curve tracks, but not enough straight tracks for us folks who want to add to their immersive lego displays. I would love to see sets of only straight tracks for sale. Why is it only possible to buy sets of tracks with multiple track types? Why can't we buy sets with straights only?
This set provides a good variety of track pieces to expand your layout. (Bear in mind, this won't make a full circle, they expect you to already have a train set that comes with an oval.) The only reason I don't give it a perfect score, is because I would love to have a way to buy track sections in smaller packs/ individually. I also miss the old + tracks. Lego, please make those again.
The track is nice and sturdy but I am annoyed that the track does not connect together in a complete loop. Doesn't have to be a circle or an oval just close some way. I even bought two sets, but even the two sets together do not work. It's like the curved pieces are not curved enough. I only bought this track because the Hogwarts train I also bought did not come with any track which I think is unacceptable. A train should come with track. Now I could understand the Hogwarts train not having enough track to make a full loop just enough for it to sit on and needing to buy extra track for it. But come on! No track for expensive train and no full loop with separate track. I'm not impressed LEGO.
The track add on box is OK, but insufficient for doing much more than adding onto existing sets. If anyone wants to create even a simple oval, multiple sets of this type would have to be purchased to do this, often to the chagrin of the parent, etc. There should be options to purchase just the tracks required to do this, or at least instructions on what would be required, rather than leave it up to guesswork. When my kids were small, I had an elaborate train set up (fixed to a base), so they could create anything they wanted. It was great for the time, but times have changed. I purchased the Hogwarts Express train set for my granddaughter, which in fact came with zero tracks. No problem, I bought a couple sets of tracks so she could enjoy a track set up. However, it was quickly obvious that the few pieces in the sets were still sadly insufficient to complete a simple oval. It is OK to show with illustrations how the box of tracks can extend other sets, but is no help to the purchaser what it would take to do anything else. Having some sort of option to get just the pieces a user needs to create and complete a simple layout would alleviate buying frustrations and help reduce negative reviews.
Items worked for what I needed, which was an architectural facade instead of actual usage by locomotives (my train project is on a classic 9v system). That being said, Lego could stand to profit if they reverted back to 8-packs of curve and straight track. That would make easier for enthusiasts to stock up in bulk without amassing an excess of extraneous flex track. The flex track appears clever but there is Youtube footage of trains not running smoothly on them. Build quality of the large track pieces is identical to the old 9v system, just without the metal rails. The system modularity lives on for those laying out designs by the "grid." Price is good, compared to what the old system is selling for. If you're starting out with trains, plastic track is cheaper. Only real complain is how hard to take apart the track from the pins holding them together four at a time when it's first opened. Kids, ask your parents for help with that.
