Review - BB 185 Train Tracks Expansion

By Tom Burgess,

Already owning a box Battlefront's "Battlefield in a Box" BB 135 Train Tracks I was very happy to be able to add a bit more variety to my on table rail lines when Battlefront released BB 185 Train Track Expansion.

The Train Track Expansion is nicely packaged and well protected like most "Battlefield in a Box" terrain.
 The contents of the box are clearly described on the back of the box.

The box comes with four curve sections, two switch sections, two coal bunkers to go on terminal track ends and the usual two types of flocking.

The thing I like most about the BB185 Expansion pieces is that they match well with the BB 135 Tracks I bought some years ago.  I have found this not to be the case with my Rural Roads where pieces bought at different times often don't seem to match.
The coal bunkers used with a switch track section help to make your rail areas more interesting.

The curve track sections are really great as your BB 135 Train Tracks now just don't have to come in on one side of the table and go straight off to the other side. Being able to "snake" your rail lines around other terrain is a real plus!

Action on the rail lines!!! Here some of my British Rifles advance across a rail line in Italy.

If you don't own BB 135 Train Tracks, then obviously there is little point buying BB 185 Track Expansion. But if you do own some of the Battlefield in a Box train tracks then this expansion is a must!
