There are 40 total pieces in all included in this Fisher Price Geotrax Railroad and Track System Playset, so I'd suggest purchasing a large storage box at the same time so that none of the smaller pieces get lost. A detailed listing of the parts included are as follows:
Find a large, flat area (preferably not carpet) when setting up this Fisher Price Geotrax Railroad and Track System as this takes up quite a bit of space (especially once you add any of the accessories to it). Inside the enclosed instruction booklet are several track layout models that can be easily followed, or you can make up your own track if desired. Separate track pieces can also be purchased, so that is the next thing on our list we'll be picking up to go with Tristan's growing train set. The track pieces themselves are made of durable plastic and hook together easily during assembly. A power button can be found on top of the train engine that must be pressed to turn it on. Attach the three railway cars behind the engine and the train is ready to go. Use the blue three-position remote controller during operation (it rests inside the depot or can be held in the child's hand) to make the train go forward, to activate the sound effects, or to make the engine stop. The depot holds up to four controllers, so purchasing this larger starter set is a must before moving on to any of the others. Check out your local store as it may have this Fisher Price Geotrax Railroad and Track System Playset already assembled for viewing (at least ours did when we purchased some of the accessories).
This open-source project is for parents who have any number of parts to the Fisher Price GeoTrax(TM) train set system. It is a simple program that parents can use to generate random track layouts, given the amount and type of track pieces.
