Take Your GeoTrax Layout Up and Out with Additional Track Pieces

Sometimes you just want your trains to go farther or higher. You can get sets that are totally or primarily track pieces – rail track, road track, elevation track, city track, and more.

It’s true that these aren’t the most glamorous sets. There’s not a lot of glitter and shine here. Okay, there’s virtually none of that, so you might want to get a set like one of these and another shinier set, if you’re giving this as a gift.

A brief note about what’s known as elevation track…

Elevation track has a ridge down the center of each piece that lets a vehicle grab on to help it get up to the next level of your layout. All green track pieces are elevation tracks. Some tan rail pieces, some gray road pieces, and some gray city pieces are also elevation tracks with the center ridge.

Listed below are the many sets that are track expansion sets. You would normally only want one of each of these, if you already own one or more starter sets and other expansions. That said, I know of several families who bought multiples of some of these sets. So I guess it just depends on what you intend to do with your track layout.

Expand Your Horizons with the Road Track Pack

B4337 Road Track Pack
B4337 Road Track Pack

When you have one or more GeoTrax vehicles and want to expand the distance you can drive, getting a track pack, such as this Road Track Pack (B4337), is the thing to do. This particular pack is mainly road pieces, in addition to several nifty signs – a wide billboard, a traffic light, and a curvy road ahead sign.

Road track is different from rail, city, and elevation track. Its main features are its gray color and gravelly texture. If you look closely, you can see a few other items strewn along the roadway too. This is the only GeoTrax set that has bumpy roads – roads that undulate up and down.

You can change the colors of the “lights” in the traffic signal from green to yellow to red by twisting the knob on its top. You can’t see it in the picture above, but the deciduous tree has an owl perched in its branches on the other side.

Like its cousin the Rail Track Pack, it was issued in 2003 and discontinued in 2007.

The Road Track Pack includes everything listed below.

  • 2 Curved Road Tracks
  • 2 Straight Bumpy Road Tracks
  • 2 Road style Y-Tracks (1 left, 1 right)
  • Curvy Road Sign
  • Deciduous Tree
  • Billboard (wide)
  • Traffic Signal

Give Your Trains More Room to Roam with the Rail Track Pack

B4338 Rail Track Pack
B4338 Rail Track Pack

This Rail Track Pack (#1, set B4338) gives your trains more options, including going over one or two bridges.

This set contains rail track which is different from road, city, and elevation track. The main features of rail style track are its tan (light brown) color and the railroad ties down its center between the rails.

I think this is the only GeoTrax set in which you get round railroad crossing signs. All of the others are X shaped.

The signal included here is really for the benefit of the trains on the track – not the cars that would cross the track.

The Rail Track Pack, initially released in 2003 and discontinued in 2007, includes everything listed below.

  • 2 Curved Rail Tracks
  • 2 Rail style Y-Tracks (1 left, 1 right)
  • 2 Bridges
  • Railway Signal
  • 2 Round Railroad Crossing Signs
  • Evergreen Tree

C6448 Elevation Track Pack – A Mystery

I haven’t been able to find a definitive list of what is included in this set. If you have any information on it, like a picture of the original box, please let me know.

Go Vertical with an Elevation Track Pack of Ramps

C6449 Elevation Track Pack - Ramps
C6449 Elevation Track Pack – Ramps

While this Elevation Track Pack (C6449) is not completely made of Ramps, that is the focus of this set. If you’re starting to run out of room with your GeoTrax collection, go vertical using the elevation ramp pairs which can be screwed together with screws provided by Fisher Price. Note that screwing the pieces together is not mandatory as the ramp halves fit quite snugly together on their own, and you get supports that go underneath them.

This is one of several track pack expansions released in 2004 and is one of the more popular sets. It has many pieces (20 with everything assembled) but is still an expansion because it is only track, supports, and guardrails. There is no vehicle to ride the rails.

A complete Elevation Track Pack Ramps set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • 4 Elevation Ramp Pairs (with a pair of screws for each)
  • 8 Supports
  • 2 Curved Elevation Tracks
  • 2 Guardrails
  • 2 Short Elevation Tracks
  • 2 On/Off Ramps (Elevation style)

Once on Top, Stay There with Elevation Track Pack Flats

C6450 Elevation Track Pack - Flats
C6450 Elevation Track Pack – Flats

Set C6449 is all about ramping up a level, but set C6450 is how to get around once you’re there. Of course, you can also use these green track pieces at the floor level just as easily.

This set is identical to L9181, which is the second release of these Flats.

A complete Elevation Track Pack Flats set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • 4 Curved Elevation Tracks
  • 4 Guardrails
  • 8 Supports
  • 2 Straight Elevation Tracks
  • 2 Short Elevation Tracks

Tool around Town with the City Track Pack

K2262 City Track Pack
K2262 City Track Pack

This City Track Pack consists of special gray track that simulates city streets. This set is identical to set L9184, which is called the Road Track Pack.

The set pictured above shows that (nearly) all the pieces are elevation track with the gear catcher running down the center. I have also seen the same type and configuration of track without the gear catcher. This may be the difference between K2262 and L9184, but I have not been able to verify this yet.

This set, which is a nice complement to the Big City Lights set, was released in 2006.

A complete set consists of the following items which are all shown in the picture.

  • 4 Curved (Elevation) City Street Tracks
  • 3 Short (Elevation) City Street Tracks
  • Straight City Street Track
  • Double (Elevation) City Street Y-Track
  • (Elevation) City Street Cross Track
  • Left (Elevation) City Street Y-Track

K3013 Special Track Pack

Engine with yellow trim
Engine with yellow trim

The first release of the Special Track Pack included the red and white Freightway Transport with yellow trim (ladders and horns on top) shown above. It was recalled for lead paint violationsin 2007. If you come across one, dispose of it properly. It should not be played with or resold.

There is a similar engine (below) that is just fine. Note the silver trim in place of the yellow.

R9360 Y-Tracks Pack

R9360 Y Tracks

The (rail) Y-Tracks Pack (R9360) is a Toys R Us exclusive that simply contains one left and one right Y-track. I guess some people thought they needed more layout options for a reasonable cost. This set was released in 2009.

R9361 Parallel Y-Switch Tracks

R9361 Switch Tracks

These Y-Switch Tracks (R9361) were originally only available in the Grand Central Station sets. They are pretty cool and useful though, so I guess Fisher Price decided to make them available on their own.
