Contrary to other reviews, the problem is not the track.

I found where somebody posted a fix elsewhere on the web. That guy's a genius. This train works great if you remove the single screw holding the front two wheels on. Those wheels are supposed to pivot to follow the track, but somehow, they only lead the train off the track. Remove that screw, and the front wheels come off. After that, the train will go round and round forever with no problem. I even had it pushing other little vehicles around the track. No problem, until I laid a wooden tree across the track. That derailed it, but I expected that.

I would agree with the posters that said that the train seems cheaply made. Use it as it's intended, and I think it will last forever, but don't drop it or sit on it. It might still work, but certainly some pieces would break off.

I've never bought another train, so I don't know if this is a good price. From the reviews I've read, apparently it's a good price for a working train, but it will only work if you remove those front wheels. Then it's great. My daughter just turned 3. She's too young to line up the wheels on the track, but once you get it started, she loves it. I enjoy it too.

when I set the train up, it ran around the track once then derailed, ITS NOT THE TRAIN, ITS THE TRACK! The track is so flimsy and garbage and will come apart very easily BUT THE TRAIN WILL RUN LIONEL TRACK! only thing flimsy with the trai is the couplers and wheels on the cars. bottom line, the train will run on better track like Lionel or MTH but the track is garbage.

    Comments about Toys 'R' Us Fast Lane Western Express Train Set - Black and Silver:

    I actually bought at clearance two years ago for Christmas display purposes, never opened, placed in the attic, forgot about it, and re-found it again. Being a 50yr old boy and finding a toy I forgot, I took it down to the living room and began to play. Out the box I noticed it is not for little children or rough play, I set it up and had a hard time keeping the engine from derailing. Upon inspection I noticed a lot of plastic that needed to be trimed so I took my pocket knife and started to clean. I found that when I cleaned the plastic off the the coupler between the tender and the the engine it allowed the engine to stay on track. I am a five n dime store nut and also from Baltimore which is a traditional "Christmas Train Garden" city. I am in the process of making two of these sets into a traditional southeast Baltimore train garden complete with hand made houses and five n dime type toy cars, trucks, and figures. I would recommend for display only. If you have a child that likes to look and not touch, it would be a nice display under the tree. A lot of people buy an expensive O scale train (that you can't touch)and very expensive porcelain houses (again something you can't touch). Why not take several weekends with your kids, some tag board, construction paper, popsicle sticks, and paint (along with one of these inexpensive train sets), sit at the kitchen table and make something that no one else has... I still have the little wooden houses my dad made and painted way back in the 60's and set them up every year.

    Comments about Toys 'R' Us Fast Lane Western Express Train Set - Black and Silver:

    This was bought as a gift for our 5yr. old-what a pile of junk. Its the cheapest plastic they make, and exstremely flimsy...Not something I would suggest for busy moms. You'll be called over by your child every 2 seconds because the train wont stay on the track. The only thing great about it was when I was returning it for a full refund.

        This train was horrible! The house did not work, the track was flimsy, and the train derails as a result of the cheap and flimsy track. I have bought less expensive trains that work better. I tried to returm this birthday gift and only received $19.99 back (it cost [$]). They should have given me $10.00 more for the disappointment. My 5 year old son even thinks Toys R Us is a rip off. DO NOT BUY!

        Comments about Toys 'R' Us Fast Lane Western Express Train Set - Black and Silver:

        This train has details that look attractive in the box but once you open it, its obvious that its not made well. The track is not durable and comes apart easily with regular use. The train doesn't stay on the track and is easily jarred. Definitely not recommended for a child under 5 since there are delicate parts and patience is required when constantly having to "fix" the train. Got this as a Christmas present for my 3 1/2 yr old and took it back.

          horrible piece of junk. Tracks do not stay together, train is very difficult to get lined up correctly on track, and once you do it derails super easy. I thought maybe the reason was carpet...tried on a hard floor...same problem. Does not include a remote so if the child slightly touches the train to switch it in a different direction it will knock it off track.

          Considering the price, this train is OK. Without spending much much more, I dont think you can buy much better than this. Best for someone not too rough and with enough patience/motor skills to frequently re-adjust the trains. Would recommend this train if your child is old enough to be a bit delicate and you dont want to spend too much to find out! Otherwise, spend the money for a really good set.
