After seeing all of the recent reviews I was a little scared when I ordered the Polar Express Train set to put around our Christmas tree this year. I thought for $60 I would take a chance. Wow am I glad I did! First of all I put the track together in no time at all. All of the pieces, even though they are plastic, snapped together with no problem. Next I put the batteries in the locomotive and it sure does add some weight to it. I was afraid the extra weight would make it sluggish or not want to pull the other 3 cars around the track. Then I put the batteries in the remote and added the other 3 cars. All connected easily and went on the track with no issues. So the moment of truth…Turned the train on, then the remote. I first tested the sounds and all worked great. The headlight was also working. So here we go…I put it in forward…I went slow for the first few laps expecting a derailment or something, especially after the recent reviews. To my (and my wife and daughters delight) everything went perfect. So we upped the speed and still no issue! Then we slowed the train down and tried it in reverse….still worked perfect!! We did put this on a flat, laminate floor so that may have helped. I’m not sure how it would have done on carpet. Anyway I am so glad I took the gamble on this! Everyone (except our little shi-tzu Oscar) love it!! I can’t wait to try it tonight when it is dark. For just using it at Christmas I look forward to many more years of enjoyment…provided Oscar doesn’t attack it! 🙂 Merry Christmas!!

All Aboard!

We bought this for our 6 year old son, he is a big Polar Express fan and this toy did not disappoint, track was very easy to put together and there are three configurations for the track, circle, extended circle and oval. The track fit perfectly around our tree in the extended circle configuration. The train works flawlessly and you control sounds with a wireless remote. Sounds are a whistle, a horn or the conductor. Son absolutely loves it, would highly recommend it for a young train enthusiast!

Great train set for Christmas

This train set has exceeded my expectations. It works really well, it stays on the track (even on carpet) and looks good. My son absolutely loves it. I give it four stars because there’s not much in the way of add on tracks, and the additional cars are ridiculously priced. Also the couplers are kind of a pain to use. But overall, for what it is, it’s a great buy. Looks great around the tree.

The train did not work on Christmas morning. The Lionel reps replaced the faulty parts and I updated my review.

I cannot put into words the disappointment I felt as a parent, when I waited until Christmas eve to set up and surprise my little boys with their long awaited Polar Express train. The remote never paired with the engine! We tried everything – 2 new sets of batteries (just in case), read the manual cover to cover, researched on youtube, and nothing. The train just sat there lifelessly underneath the tree. I wish I had seen some of the reviews left by other buyers.

My son loves trains and he was asking if we could have a train to put under our tree this year so I looked around locally and found the typical Christmas train sets that all range from about $40-$100. Most are sold out at this time in the stores and I almost didn’t get one until I decided to look on Amazon.. I found this by accident and it is perfect since my son just watched and really “got” the Polar Express this season. He stops whatever he is doing and watches it all the way through so I ordered this set and it really is great!! It’s from a company that makes good quality hobby trains and the little details are all there. It is plastic but you can’t tell really and it runs very smoothly.. we used an oval pattern and it runs with no issue at any speed we set it at. The sounds are all controlled by remote and it is simple to operate. I read reviews about issues derailing and flimsy parts but I don’t see anything poorly made it’s just simple and it isn’t hobby grade so I can’t try to hold it to that standard!! It’s likely better than most of the train sets at this price point and as good as most slightly above so this is well worth the price especially at the current $60 it is going for with prime.. There’s still time to get one before Christmas and I would recommend this to anyone looking to add that little extra to their decorations and experience for the holidays!

Kids love it. I think it’s a pain in the _ _ _ keeps falling off the track and the 4 pieces of the train don’t stay connected. Especially if you go full speed. Great actual train tho.
