To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Track included in starter sets is very minimal. These are a good way to expand your layout, even simpler layouts that are not complex but will give your train(s) more distance to travel. Also useful for building sidings where industries and factories can be located, or mainline operations with dual tracks (examples only). Amazon has these cheaper in packs of 4 than buying the pieces individually at some other retailers. Highly recommended. You can never have enough track.
