Sometimes you just need to be given a longer path or a straight way!
These add on track pieces allow you to make a bigger track area. You can design you own train track, take it apart and resign a new one. Being able to add tracks is sure to add hours of fun for your little engineer.

You can also get more curves for your train track. They are also available and sold separately. Going in a straight line all the time is no fun, so why not add curved tracks and make a larger figure 8 or other cool design!
