Admire the countryside as the Bigjigs Express chugs around the wooden track. The Bigjigs Rail Country Crossing Train Set adds a twist to the classic figure of eight layout, and is the ideal first train set for any budding young railway enthusiast. This extensive wooden playset features high quality wooden track pieces, a wooden engine and 2 carriages, freestanding houses, a pond and duck, people, cars, a stop sign, trees and more! There is plenty of track and accessories to keep young minds occupied for hours. Unlike a normal figure of eight layout, the Country Crossing Train Set features a curved track piece in the centre that allows the train to travel in a continuous loop around the track - watching out for the end where there's a buffer! Train play is a great way to encourage creative and imaginative role play, narrative thinking and coordination. Magnetic couplings ensure compatibility with all other engines and carriages in the Bigjigs Rail range. Additional accessories are available to expand this set. Most other major wooden railway brands are compatible with Bigjigs Rail. Made from high quality, responsibly sourced materials. Conforms to current European safety standards.
