We purchased this track set as a birthday gift for our son's 1st birthday, and he loves it. It's all he plays with all day long! I'm actually surprised to see many of the negative reviews! Yes, the bridge will fall over if it gets pushed, I think that this kind of bridge tends to do that. Also, if you put a straight track piece next to the hill, the train should stay on the tracks much better than hitting a curve right away when it's at peak momentum.

As far as the train not fitting under the bridge: what we found is that when you set it up on a carpeted area, the bridge is lower so it doesn't fit. If you set it up on a hard surface, then it fits just fine.

We did find that the train doesn't run the smoothest when pushing it around the curves, but we'd totally forgotten about it after using it repeatedly, so it doesn't bother us, really.

Basically, my family plays with this set constantly and we would buy it all over again any time.

Bought this set several years ago when our son was 3 or 4; he had started getting some wooden RR stuff before and we were happy to get a set to really get going on it. I have discovered Imaginarium has poor design quality control on the RR items and thus, will not buy anything else except some of the train cars.

First, they neglected to realize the train provided (and many others of theirs) will not fit under the bridge. We had to add things under the bridge supports to raise it up.

Second, very important, the tolerances on the track joints are TERRIBLE. Some are far too tight, others very loose. The tight pieces hardly fit together and take a good deal of strength to force.

Last, a minor thing but annoying, the supports are simple and do not actually hold on to the track, so they easily slide out or the supports move away from joints.

I tried to buy a few more pieces of track, but they were still bad. Never again. It all looks nice, and holds up (yes, it is wood), but lots of sloppy design.

Thomas tracks are very good quality, but if you want quality fit AND relatively cheap tracks, get Melissa & Doug! Plus, M&D has the best elevation supports!

Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Imaginarium City Train Set:

I bought it for my 2 yr old grandson who just loves it. He loves moving the train around the tracks. What he doesn't like is that the elevated tracks come apart so easily. I have to hover nearby as maintenance engineer to reattach the elevated sections. I am planning on gluing or screwing the flat track to a hard surface but that doesn't solve the elevated tracks issue. I may need double sided tape to attach them to the plastic trestles. A small design flaw. Otherwise, a big hit and difficult to pull him away from it when it is time to go home.

Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Imaginarium City Train Set:

We have been getting our daughter acquainted with all sorts of toys and thought a train set would be awesome! Boy were we right! Simple to set up, but my only negative comment is that there weren't any dimension measurements for the surface area of the train track. I wanted to get a table for the train track, but had to take it home to set it up first to measure it out. That is my one negative comment and it's just a personal convenience, so really nothing overly negative to say.

    Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Imaginarium City Train Set:

    Great value for the money! This set was a really nice addition to my son's existing Imaginarium supply. There were more components than I realized - trains, characters, extra tracks, a bridge, and of course the train station. i just can't justify buying ONE Thomas or Chuggington piece for the same price.

        Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Imaginarium City Train Set:

        I bought this product mainly for my little train lover. My husband decided to build my son a train table (bonding time) to make it more special. So of course with the table and trains we needed the tracks. The set was just perfect. We were able to build our track to our liking and added some more accessories to it. The only down side of it was the tracks are not compatible with the thomas trains...not the wooden ones at least...the track masters wer fine but the original thomas and friend trains were too small for the tracks. Needless to saymmy son didnt care and made it work somehow.

                We bought this set for our toddler that's recently become a big fan of trains. He absolutely loves it and plays with it all day every day, so far. It's perfect for his hands to hold and connect. The material is great quality and sure to last. We could care less for the trees and people though. It's great for a starter kit but definitely could use more parts. All in all we are totally happy with the purchase;great price for a great toy.

                Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Imaginarium City Train Set:

                I like the idea of this set, but many little frustrations ruined the experience for my 2-yr-old son and I.

                1. The 2 gates you see pictured break away from the buildings very easily and are thus entirely useless.

                2. The train included can not physically climb the hills without either coming off the track or uncoupling. This is due to its shape. The cars either bump against each other or grind against the track.

                3. All of the wheels have sketchy alignment and sometimes stick. So rather than whizzing around the track, the train must be dragged and more often than not derails around curves.

                4. The wooden track has noticeable burrs where it's been cut, and small pieces chip off.

                5. As others have said, the train doesn't fit under the bridge! It *barely* clears the elevated wooden track, but the bridge has additional plastic hanging below on which to get completely stuck.

                On the plus side, the train station has very nice colourful details painted on its sides - bricks, windows and such - which don't appear in any of the pictures on the box. That was a pleasant surprise. So I'd say, if you like the style or you need the pieces, it may be worthwhile if you have a different train to use with it. On its own, it's pretty broken. Admittedly, my son was much more forgiving and had fun with it. I however will be returning it for another set.
