Thomas had always been a big favourite with the boys, so you can imagine the excitement when they got to try out the new Thomas and Percy’s Railway Race Set.
It was super easy to assemble, with coded parts and an easy to follow instructions sheet to go off. You will need a screwdriver to open the battery cover on the trains. They take x4 AAA batteries.
It is quite different to the other tracks as this is a race circuit where two trains compete for first place!
The motorised trains are placed at the start and held in position by a little brake lever. Once released they head off along the tracks.
When they approach the bridge, it flings open to make way for the engines.
When the trains head back towards the finish line, the winner sets off the chequered flag. Celebratory Fireworks also pop up on top of the gantry.
I think the Thomas and Percy’s Railway Race Set is brilliant value for £46.99. It kept the boys entertained for a fair time.
This track was inspired by The Great Race Movie which is released on DVD today.
Thomas in on an exciting adventure in the new film ‘The Great Race’ and the fun-loving engine pulls out all the stops to find a way to test his mettle against a host of new international engines at the Great Railway Show. The new TrackMaster™ Railway Race Set is inspired by the new DVD and delivers fun, fast thrills straight from the film as Thomas and Percy race! Children will love watching two of their favourite characters head for the bridge, which bursts apart to make way for the speeding engines.
