CLAIMS
1. A portable, flexible, and adaptable train track system that supports one or more train components, the train track system comprising:
a plurality of segments, each segment connectable to and detachable from one another, each segment comprising:
a main body comprising an upper running surface that extends continuously across opposed sides upon which the one or more train components run and a receiving chamber formed within the main body;
a pair of track members extending outwardly from the opposed sides of the main body; and a connector component extending outwardly from the main body opposite the receiving chamber, comprising a necked portion proximate the main body and a distal portion sized larger than an opening of the receiving chamber that engages the receiving chamber and allows movement of each segment in an up-down direction and a side-to-side direction.

2. The train track system of claim 1, wherein the receiving chamber comprises a curved shape into which the connector component is snap-fitted.
3. The train track system of claim 2, wherein the distal portion of the connector component is curved.
4. The track system of claim 1, wherein the pair of track members provide stability for the support of the one or more train components.
5. The track system of claim 1, wherein the one or more train components align the train track system for movement thereon by running along the upper running surface of a plurality of segments connected to one another.
6. A toy train system, comprising:
a track comprised of a plurality of segments that connect to and detach from one another, each segment comprising:
a main body comprising an upper running surface with opposed sides and a receiving chamber formed within the main body;
a pair of track members extending outwardly from the opposed sides of the main body; and a connector component extending outwardly from the main body opposite the receiving chamber, comprising a necked portion proximate the main body and a distal portion sized larger than an opening of the receiving chamber that engages the receiving chamber and allows movement of each segment in an up-down direction and a side-to-side direction;
at least one train component that connects to the track for movement thereon, the at least one train component comprising: a drive member that engages the upper running surface;
a switch element that when operated drives the drive member to move the at least one train component along the track;
a pair of rail guides that engage the opposed sides of the main body; and
a spring element connected between the pair of rail guides that operates the switch element when the pair of rail guides engage the opposed sides of the main body.
7. The toy train system of claim 6, wherein the receiving chamber comprises a curved shape into which the connector component is snap-fitted, and wherein the distal portion of the connector component is curved.
8. The toy train system of claim 6, wherein the drive member comprises a drive belt, a pair of pulleys, and a rail guide.
9. The toy train system of claim 6, wherein the spring element provides pressure to the pair of rail guides to secure the at least one train component to the upper running surface.
10. The toy train system of claim 6, further comprising a motor that drives the drive member, wherein the switch element supplies current to the motor.
11. The toy train system of claim 6, wherein the at least one train component aligns the track for movement thereon by running along the upper running surface of a plurality of segments connected to one another.
12. The toy train system of claim 6, wherein the track, comprised of a plurality of segments connected to one another, connects to pre-set track sections.
13. The toy train system of claim 6, wherein the track, comprised of a plurality of segments connected to one another, flexibly fits within and/or over one or more objects.
14. The toy train system of claim 13, wherein the one or more objects directionally constrain the track.
15. A toy train system, comprising:
a track comprised of a plurality of segments that connect to and detach from one another, each segment comprising:
a main body comprising an upper running surface that extends continuously across opposed sides upon which the one or more train components run and a receiving chamber formed within the main body;
a pair of track members extending outwardly from the opposed sides of the main body; and a connector component extending outwardly from the main body opposite the receiving chamber, comprising a necked portion proximate the main body and a distal portion sized larger than an opening of the receiving chamber that engages the receiving chamber and allows movement of each segment in an up-down direction and a side-to-side direction;
at least one train component that connects to the track for movement thereon, the at least one train component comprising:
a drive belt that engages the upper running surface;
a motor that drives the drive belt to move the at least one train component along the track, a switch element that when operated supplies current to the motor;
a pair of rail guides that engage the opposed sides of the main body; and
a spring element connected between the pair of rail guides that operates the switch element when the pair of rail guides engage the opposed sides of the main body.
