    Default Michaels Lemax Train

    Does anyone know if the new train uses the same track as the old train?

    It looks like it, but I can't get any info on that for sure.

    I have read where the train some times jumps the track because the wheels are not wide enough, is this true?

    I heard a lot of complaints about the train in general. How the back car won't stay the track, but I don't know about the wheels. I don't have this particular piece because I went with the train from Dept 56 (just cars, no track, no motion). If you're new to Lemax, you're just discovering how frustrating their quality is, or lack of. I started out with Lemax because they were cheaper than Dept 56, but after getting several pieces where they didn't work right, fresh out of the box, I moved over to Dept 56. Though Lemax does have a lot of cool trees and accessories still.
    A good place to go for advice on this, is the website I belong to for villaging. If anyone's going to be able to tell you A.) if this is true or not with the wheels, and B). how to fix it, it would be these guys.
    buildingnewworlds.net
    Free to join, they ask for donations IF you want to (I haven't in over a year), and it's about everything villaging. I just recommended this website on another thread and someone said they ask a question to be allowed to join. I hear the answer is 2000 and you should have no problem signing up. They have groups for dept 56., Lemax, Halloween villages, etc. I've found it very helpful when I have problems with my houses, or if I need a question answered by people who do the same things I do. It's a lot of fun and the people are nice.
    Another place to ask is the ehobbytools.com people. They sell the most Spooky Town stuff I've seen on the net and the owner is really good at fixing Lemax. You can email or call for questions and Scott is very helpful. They have excellent customer service and I've bought lots of stuff from them. Hope this helps
