Nice combo of engine, cars and extras.
Very realistic and fairly well made.
Track is easy to put together and works fine on the carpet.
Controller is easy to use.
Great value (when on sale).
Engine lights up on both ends.
Easy to expand and maintain interest in kids.
The locomotive is pretty heavy and because of that it feels sturdy. I wouldn’t dare dropping it on the floor though; I doubt it would survive impact intact. The cars feel a little delicate, however the amount of detail in the painting and molding is impressive. The wheels did come off when unpacking, but they were really easy to pop back into the truck frame.
This was an excellant set for my son and I. I was amazed at the value we got for the price. We were set to purchase the same set for $100.00 more elsewhere until we saw it on Amazon.com. The amount of the contents was staggering. The buildings included would easily cost at least $40-50.00 a piece by themselves. So to include such detailed items as part of this set was really over the top. Great train set for an outstanding price.
