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.
A piece of garbage, especially considering the price. Setup easily enough (8'X12' oval), engine ran for a length of 4-6 pieces of track and stopped. Ran several engines with same result. Took apart & built smaller 4'X6' oval. Train ran fine, substituted all pieces of track and all worked fine. Re-built original 8'X12' layout, and again, train WOULD NOT run. Have spent 12 hours trying to figure out problem, I am running a Lionel ZW 275 transformer. All other trains on O and O27 guage track are working fine. Frustrating, don't have the time or patience to "test" this product. Going back to dependable O or O27 guage for this oval layout. Sending this back.
Poor center rail connection - 12 of the 16 track sections would not work with FasTrack purchased 3 years ago and some of the new track sections wouldn't work with each other. I don't know if I got a bad bunch or not, but now I'm going to purchase from a local store.
I am disappointed with Lionel FasTrack. I have owned Lionel trains since I was a 8 years old. Last year I purchased the Pennsylvania Flyer O gauge remote control train set and a couple of additional straight track packs. We set up the train around the Christmas Tree and it would not make it around the oval layout without stopping. This year while setting it up again I spend a couple hours with an ohm meter checking the continuity of every piece of track. I isolated two pieces of track that have connection problems. Without those two track sections in the layout the trains works fine.
