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.

Essential Kit

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

An essential addition to our Heavy Haul. Works perfectly. My Godson's first experience of points - this set is his move up from wooden Thomas Track - he was using them like he knew Brunel personally. Would like to see it available with straight track. For us the lack of packs of straight track is a downside. More track pack options please Lego. We would also like to see extra packs offering locos and wagons.

It ought to be about simplicity

By CitizenNick

from Undisclosed

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

As a 40+ year old Lego enthusiast, I had the privilige of owning the early train Lego sets of the 80s. I really loved how you could easily power up a train track in a centrally managed way with easy switches and built-in functions for manipulating switch tracks. I must say that today's out-of-the-box functionality falls far short of its great predecessor. To get any form of fun track functioning, you not only need to get a boat-load of motors, battery packs, IR-receivers, IR remote controls and so on and so forth to be able to manipulate even a single switch. The cost mounts very quickly and I fail to see the value for money here. What is even more annoying is that there is no "simple" way to power these switches. No official instructions are available. No kits are for sale for this purpose and so on. Another great downside to today's Lego Train is the amount of batteries you need instead of having everything hooked up to mains. I must say that the fun in Lego Train has taken a great leap backwards from the 1980s.

Nice to have Extra tracks

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

Recently purchased both the Cargo Train and Heavy Hauler Train. Enjoy both very much. It is very nice that Lego sells two types of additional extra railroad track pieces/sets. I combined the 2 sets plus these extra pieces to make a larger set up.

Awesome set of Tracks!

By Mompicksuplegoagain

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

We bought these to go with a set of straight train tracks and a set of Flexible Tracks (which are also awesome!). My only problem turned out to be that we didn't consider that the number of track pieces we purchased limited the size of the track he was able to build. I thought the switching track would connect with the amount we bought. The boxes the tracks come in have great instructions on how to build tracks, but I didn't notice this on the website when I order the sets...otherwise I would have bought 2 or 3 as suggested. So, right now, the Hogwarts Train has to back up after driving up the one section of switching track or it will crash. On the upside, now he has something to save allowance for.

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