Do these Cars tracks work with the older Geotrax tracks (the green ones and the beige ones?)

Owner said...

Yes the CARS tracks and sets work with the other GeoTrax green, beige and gray track pieces and GeoTrax sets. Too much fun...

I was ont eh Geo Trax website this weekend and I saw two new trains. Blue Pony(delivery train) and A yellow demolition train. Today on the website both of these were no longer on the site. Any news on these that you know of?

Can the Cars drive on the older geotrax? So not just can they all connect together, but can the cars go right on the existing geotrax railroad pieces rather than their own road sets?


Owner said...

Yes, all the GeoTrax sets work with the new cars sets and the new car sets work with the old car sets...I am unaware of any issues.

Can someone help me? We don't own any geotrax. We are thinking of starting a collection for our two year old twins. I have a few questions. If I purchase the central station and the timbertown railroad do they connect together? Not sure how to start. Not sure if I should look for the pixar cars or just regular geotrax. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Owner said...

Yes, you can buy multiple sets and connect them together. That is the great thing about GeoTrax. You can see lots of pictures of multiple GeoTrax sets connected together if you go to http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?st=5757&e=tracklayouts&layout=1. You can also see videos the many fans and enthusiasts of GeoTrax have created by going to http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=geotrax. Hope that helps...

Has anyone had any issues with this set? We bought a set that has McQueen and a manual sheriff and trex (the train). The McQueen has started slipping on the tracks quite badly and we've only had it for 2 days. The wheels are not turning on McQueen after going down the hill. Thanks!

Where do you find the Fillmore's tent pack and the tire station pack for the geotrax. I can't find it anywhere. It is posted on the fisher price web page but you can't buy it. All the retailers they suggest do not have these. HELP!

I have a question if anyone can help. I have a locomotive that came with a layout called Geotrax Tracktown. The locomotive is remote controlled a operates in the forward direction only. Is this the way this locomotive functions or can there be something wrong? All the previous locomotives I have seen in the past worked in forward or reverse or were unpowered.

So how come I cant fine Luigi's tire store for Geo trax anywhere? At fisher price it says they make them but you cant find them in the USA.
