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):

This item is as described. Since Lego sets come with minimal straight track this is the only way to buy more straight pieces. The flex track i used to dislike, but now find it convenient for hooking up track sections that require non-standard lengths.

        Bring back the old track sets!

        By Legoman7277

        from Pittsburgh

        Comments about LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499):

        I think we can all agree when making a lego city or a lego layout where we plan on having a lot of trains straight track is the essential and hard to come by. Most Lego train sets come with no or very few straight track so we all come to this set. Lego track is very overpriced and I think the flexible track is not very useful, unrealistic, and looks bad. Now yes flexible can come in handy if you have a tiny spot to fill whether is a curved spot or a straight spot. But sell it separately. Flexible track does have its own set, but why doesn't straight track? I think a set with 8 straight track for $9.99 would be a life saver for those who need bulk quantities of straight track and don't need or want the flexible track. Also what ever happened to the old track sets. The double crossover set was amazing and was very popular to consumers, yet Lego discontinued it. Now to get it is $150+. Also the simple cross over track we saw in every era of track from 4.5v to 9v yet they decided not to make one in RC track form. What ever happened to the old Lego track days. I think if you just need extra track this might be a good set for you. But if you just need straight track in bulk quantities of it I can not recommend this to you.

            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.

            Flex track do serve a purpose

            By jodawill

            from Galveston

            Comments about LEGO City Flexible Train Tracks (7499):

            Important note: Flex track only works well when attached to baseplates. For my current display, my straight tracks are 4 studs away from the side of the baseplate. That doesn't leave enough room for me to fit a tunnel on one baseplate. So I needed to change the track offset just for that portion of the layout. I tried using curves, but two connected curves are only 31 studs long, and I needed them to be 32 studs long. My solution was to use these flex track pieces to change the offset to 7 studs. Using 2x2 and 1x2 jumper plates, I was able to keep the flex tracks from moving while connected to a baseplate. The number of flex track pieces included in this set was the exact number I needed for each side of the tunnel. Yes, flex track is loud, but when used properly, it doesn't cause derailments, noticeable slowdowns, or anything like that. It's definitely not a suitable replacement for straight or curved tracks, but that's not what they were made for. I would even argue that they should never be used at their full radius. The only thing I don't like about this set is that you can't buy the straight tracks without buying flex tracks. Flex track is never used in large quantities, so it would be frustrating if I had to buy tons of these sets to accumulate straight tracks. If the two types of track were sold separately, I would give each a 5 star review. PS â€" Lego, please make RC x-crosses.
