Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Make your train tracks flexible! Add LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499) to your train track system to connect tracks around obstacles and awkward shapes. Make your trains go even farther! Includes 8 straight tracks and 16 flexible tracks. Tracks do not conduct electricity and therefore are not compatible with LEGO 9v Trains.

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together." The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

    Lego train track is pretty standard. There is not much to say about it other than if you get into Lego trains, you will need more of it. Generally, it snaps together easily and stays together pretty well. My complaint with this specific set is all of the flexible pieces. These pieces come in handy to make some final connections to maximize track space or if you have a complex track setup with switches. If you put too many of these together in a row, the track is wavy (looks silly for a train fan; kids think its funny however). You don't need all the flexible pieces this set provides. Two more regular straight pieces and a reduction in flexible pieces would be great. One other note: Some people have mentioned trains slow down on these flexible tracks. We have not noticed that. What we have noticed is that the trains are louder when the roll over these tracks compared to the normal straight and curve tracks.

    I was out to buy myself some new tracks for my ever expanding railway, but instead of finding the well loved straight and curve track pack, I find this new pack. Upon closer inspection of the box, I wasnt too disappointed, as it looked to be a cheaper way to obtain a few flexi tracks without having to buy a huge pile of them. But that was before I realised they had stopped selling the original straight and curve pack. WHY? First off, I would much rather have 8 curves than 4 track pieces worth of flexi track. Flexi is useful sometimes, but no-one wants mountains of it. It looks ugly as anything when used in large amounts in conjunction with normal track, and now in order to get more straights you have to buy tons of flexi track. And now the pack is more expensive? and you get less? What? But--- before I go on to criticise any longer, I'd still like to thank the lego designers or employees who at least care about the "trains" department. Thanks for trying to do something anyway. Anyway lego, the thing is, there are a lot of afols into the trains, and we would like a tad more variety. Please? How about re-introducing the parrallel crossover? Or the cross-track? Why don't you just sell the tracks individually like the 9v system did? 16 straights in one box, 16 curves in another box, and 48 pieces of flexi in another box? Or at least sell this new pack in conjunction with the old straight and curve mixed pack? The problem here is that basic track (straights), of which many are needed, are being sold COMBINED with more specialised tracks (flexi). Flexi is useful sometimes, but in comparison we need more basic track, and every time we buy this expansion pack, we pay more, get less, and wind up with more flexi track than we need! (Also note that to buy more curves we now have no other option besides buying switches for a measly 4 curves, or purchasing a whole new train set...) SO- overall this pack isn't terribly bad, but the fact that lego stopped selling the crucial straight and curve pack is. Lego could fix the problem buy continuing to sell this in conjunction with the straight and curve expansion, or even go better by selling each type of track individually, and introducing some new track pieces like crossovers or cross tracks. Thanks in advance, lego. -Legotrainfanatic

      Comments about LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499):

      Great way to add twists and turns to a layout. The flexible track lets you combine normal straights and curves that don't quite connect otherwise. My train travels on the flexible track segments very smoothly.

          Awesome set when you are trying to expand your lego train. One down fall cant seem to ever get enough track to do the whole room LOL. Joking aside it is a great set.

          Flexible Lego Track

          By srw7716

          from Raleigh

          Comments about LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499):

          At first I did not like the flex track at all. It does not look right with the other curved and straight track. But having some, is a life saver when building your layout. I wish I could buy the straight and curved track as separate packs. I am about to do an expansion and have not decided how or where I will try to purchase more track.

          You'll Need More

          By RadiumOxide

          from Melbourne

          Comments about LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499):

          I was silly and only purchased two boxes to start a set not realising I couldn't even make one loop which meant a second trip to the shops and me going overboard buying more than I needed and is really practical, I now need a dedicated Lego room. This is a well built product as per Lego standards you expect, the flexible track is interesting but not suited to me as I like everything perfectly lined up, in saying that though it is good to have a little bit of flexibility in your track layout, heaven forbid you or someone else should accidentally kick or walk into the track it doesn't all go flying across the room. It also means you can have some crazy and random track layouts.

          Straight track good, flex junk

                Comments about LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499):

                The straight track is of course good and at the average $20 for this box which includes 8 straight pieces, it is still cheaper to buy this box that has straight and flex than to buy 8 single straight track pieces off third party sites. The flex track needs to be positioned perfectly or it makes it way too easy to derail a train (even at non-max speed).

                I have had no problem with these tracks. They are great for completing a loop, or fixing a layout that barely comes up short.
