Kids love it the first season. This year took out of box, installed new batteries and the train only moves a few inches before the train stops moving. Seems like the motor failed and is seizing. Train also very loud and unable to adjust or mute. First experience with Lionel not great.

We received this is a gift last year and enjoyed it but similar to other reviewers, this worked one season and now no longer works. It moves 1 inch and stops. Replaced batteries and no change. This was very disappointing for my 3 and 5 year old. Expected better from Lionel.

We have had this train for 5 years and it has brought years of joy to great grandson. He has loaded everything imaginable in the crates, from small stuffed animals to rocks and all have ridden easily. At 7 he still can't wait to get it out every year. Great memories we will all cherish.

The train was easy to setup and works great but it’s very loud and there is no way to turn it down. It’s just as loud when idling - you have to physically turn it off to make the noise stop. Kids love it but my wife and I groan any time it comes out of the closet.

We bought this for our son last Christmas. Worked well for one year then the gears stopped working. Tried to fix it but couldn’t easily find a replacement motor. Unfortunate because he really liked it!

Fun Train but Only Lasted One Season

1 out of 5 stars
Meisterbrau65 - 1 year ago

This is our second Lionel battery powered train. The first one lasted years. Unfortunately, this one worked great last season but when we set it up this season, put brand new batteries in it, it would only move a couple of inches before just stopping. We asked for a warranty replacement but it was just over a year old. I can't bring myself to buy it again, despite wanting another train under the tree.

I like it that it ran smooth. It looks nice. The sounds are cool. I did not like the design of the tracks. I did not like the way they connect. Over all I enjoy the track.

I bought this for my son and we put it together and put batteries in it and when we turn the remote for it to go it moves about an inch then stops. Tried different batteries same thing. I have some of their high dollar train sets and they are great. Was hoping these would be the same quality but I guess you get what you pay for

We wanted to get a train for under our Christmas tree. We decided on this one with the anticipation of grandchildren. It fit perfectly under the tree and worked flawlessly the whole season. The remote is easy to use. The train moves easily going forwards and backwards.

Unfortunately you can't control the sound volume. The chugging noise is so loud and becomes very annoying. You wind up just never running the thing. Get something where you can control the sound.

Disappointed Kids

You want your kids disappointed, then this is the product for you. The controller losses connectivity with the engine and the train sits under the tree and continuously beeps. When it works for about 30 seconds a day, it's pretty cool! Don't waste your money.

Great Value

5 out of 5 stars
Gracie - 2 years ago
What a great train set. I didn't know what to expect. It has plenty of tracks (straight and curved). It has 3 sound settings. One is a whistle, the other is a destination and the third is a bell. It is worth the price. You will need to purchase 6-C sized batteries for the engine plus 3-AAA for the remote.
