Product Description

LEGO City Switch Tracks (7895). Switch tracks to help make your track even longer. No electricity? works with IR train sets #7897 and 7898, and can be combined with track sets #4515, 4519 and 4520. Set contains 8 pieces.

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. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. 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!

    Well, if you ever need to expand your LEGO Train layout this is a must, whether to create a parallel track to your main line or make an entirely different route. It opens up so many possibilities. However, it could be better. With this switch track, you can only make a track that curves back to the main line. (See the first picture. Sorry they're a little sloppy.) This is pretty limiting. I would like to see switches that you can make to form a 90 degree turn away from the main line (see second picture). One easy way to accomplish this is to make the last half-section of the curved part of the switch track able to come off. That way, you could make it a larger curve, or a curve like it already is. (see third picture) If you are planning to expand your LEGO Train layout, this set is a must. You can make parallel tracks with ease. If LEGO could consider my last suggestion, that would be great. (Oh, and for some reason, this review box I'm typing in keeps scrolling up and down really fast every time I type. I don't know why, but it's pretty annoying.

    This is a must have to make layouts fun. One of our favorite uses is to make a simple "balloon loop", so we can run the train out to "far" destinations and have it come back without having to stop it and back up. Unfortunately Lego messed up the switch design. Normally a switch turns out from the straight direction, in a continuous arc. Sadly Lego's turn out has another arc turning back towards the switch slightly. This forces the train to curve out, then back, which means the train slows down somewhat (more friction) and more wiggle of the train, increasing the chance of derailment. Since Lego offers so few track options, and buying more track is so important to making this a fun toy, I hope they offer a better switch. They should take a trip to the hobby shop and study the shape of hobby train switches. If they really want to offer the "turn back" arc or whatever it is called, that should be a separate short curve track. The Lego trains are more fun than expected, and we'll probably buy a fair amount of track over the next few years. Lego should improve their track options.

        The switch tracks work very well in expanding a train track layout or for creating a train track train yard.

            Simply a Must-have

            Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO City Switch Tracks (7895):

            The title says it all: this set is a must-have for the person who wants their trains to do something other than go round in circles (pun intended). I'm very glad that these switching tracks are included in the cargo train sets. The yellow handle seems a bit flimsy, but so far I haven't broken any, so I assume appearances can be deceiving.

            These are a really neat feature in conjunction with the Train Station and High Speed Pass Train. Gives you the option for a divided track to pull into the station. Ultra easy to use, super neat, work great. Definitely a must for the 'cool' factor.

                My 9 yr old twin boys needed the extension for their tracks and this set works well for that purpose. It should be available in stores as well. Also a little expensive.
