An amazing train
By Amanda -
I just received the train on Tuesday & it's amazing, my grandfather asked my son while we were visiting him over the summer on vacation if he'd like a train for Christmas & he said yes. I decided on this one so we could make it bigger over the years I set it up & everything to make sure everything is in working order & put everything back to wrap up for Christmas. Although my son will be 9 1/2 at Christmas he'll love it, I have always wanted a train to put around the Christmas tree. I call this my future grandchildren/great grandchildren's project lol. I highly recommend it. It's very simple to put together & just beautiful. The last 3 cars are 12 inches long each & light up so cool, i'm an excited mommy at that. Enjoy.
Big kid finally got his new toy!!

I shopped around for this and Amazon was the cheapest by far, in stores and the internet. I am very happy with Amazon and everything I have bought on here. I do about 80% of my Christmas shopping on Amazon and my children write their Christmas list from Amazon as well. Scary, but they understand cheaper price means a bigger pile on Christmas morning! LOL
Another great product from Lionel!

This train set is just great. Runs steady at any speed and was very easy to set up. The only flaw that I have is that the Air whistle is very faint. You really have to listen for it. (It is not like ones found in other Lionel steam engines). Over all this is a good product well made and should last more than a lifetime.....
The Lionel Trains Polar Express Train set is a wonderful Christmas gift for young and old alike. This beautifully styled and crafted train set recalls memories of yesteryear and Christmas past. It's based on the book and movie 'Polar Express' and would be loved by children looking for their first train set or by older train collectors. The set is fairly easy to assemble, and is a great gift that the whole family can enjoy together for many years.
It's so realistic - the cars feature interior lighting and silhouettes in the windows to make it look like there are little passengers aboard. The engine puffs smoke and has a headlamp that really works. There's even a steam whistle for that added touch of real old-time train realism. The set includes figures modeled after the characters from the 2004 movie Polar Express.
The train is generally easy to set up - younger children may need mom or dad's help, but bringing the family together is one of the true joys of a model train set.
The Transformer is easy to use, even for small hands, and allows forward and reverse movement. The included track is 40" x 60" and extra pieces of track are available separately to expand the set to your hearts content.
