Make sure your cars can cross the railway safely! You can lower the barriers by hand or let them lower automatically, one at a time, when the train passes thanks to the magnets. Brio created the first wooden railway in 1958. Since then we've built up the world's largest range of wooden railway items. Our modular system offers endless layout possibilities and endless fun. Brio's railway system is crafted from the highest quality beech wood, making them durable for years to come. It is a classic toy that children will keep coming back to time after time.
