Rated 4 out of 5 by from All Aboard What a great train set. Used it for the first time this past Holiday under the tree and it worked out great. The track was easy to assemble and you can do multiple configurations. The locomotive and cars are highly detailed and rode smoothly on the track. The locomotive sounds and whistle is a very nice touch. The only down fall I have is the batteries, the locomotive takes 6 'C' batteries and the controller takes 3 'AA' batteries. They lasted us through the Hoilday season but I do not know if you would get two seasons out of them. I removed them from the train prior to packing it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great train for Christmas This is a very nice train. I will say I was a little surprised that it was plastic. I am used to the heavy duty old fashion Lionel Trains. That aside my 6yr old boy loves this train and couldn't wait to put it together and play. It comes with a lot of tracks so it will be perfect to go around our Christmas tree. I love that it has a remote control and it is easy to use for him. I am a little concerned with how many batteries it takes but I think it will be worth it to stock up. Overall this is a great train a kid would love to play with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for holiday decorating This train set is well built. The sounds it makes are good. The detail of each cart is great. I plan on using it as decoration by a Christmas tree come December! Only thing I did not like is that 6 C batteries are required, those are not too common. Easy setup!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Engine Broke the First Time We Used It It's a cute train for around the tree- and kids will like it. Unfortunately, it was only used once for 20 minutes prior to the engine getting seized up somehow. The wheels stopped turning and it makes a horrible noise when you turn it on. I will be packing it up and either returning or exchanging it. I need to do a little more research to see if we just got a bad one or if this is something that happens often.
