Thomas & Friends Trackmaster. Thomas Rides the Rails

As previously explained we had decided to buy our son a Thomas and Friends Trackmaster train set, and we purchased the Thomas Rides the Rails set which is described on the box as The Perfect Starter Set.
Thomas Rides the Rails Starter Set
The first thing that you'll notice is how small the box is that contains all the parts, if you are expecting a monster sized set you are going to be disapointed, but if it eases the pain it is well packaged, although the truth is that this isn't a big set. Consisting of 2 straight sections and 8 bend sections the track forms an oval shape, with 1 of the straights containing the flip switch to stop the train moving at the station.
The set comes with a plastic station and sticker set to decorate it as Elsbridge station, and it provides the perfect setting to stop the train.

The set comes with a battery powered and well detailed model of Thomas, which is the perfect choice for a starter set, Thomas runs on a single AA battery, although you might want to invest in rechargeable batteries and a charger.
To show the set in action I've created the following video, which shows the size of the track and how trains can be stopped at the station.
You can buy this set from Amazon
