Remember the Electric Train Sets you had as a kid? That classic experience is hard to find today at an affordable price which is why POWERTRAINS were created. POWERTRAINS are realistic N-Scale trains that run on batteries, not electricity. They are perfect for kids looking for an authentic train experience with realistic features and themes. Build and expand your POWERTRAINS world with multiple sets, realistic looking motorized engines, themed 4 car packs and additional track packs (each sold separately).
Collect, Connect and Expand your POWERTRAINS World with the new POWERTRAINS Remote Control Train and Quarry Set. Use the new remote control feature to power your motorized train around 15 feet of track! Stop off at the quarry, featuring a working conveyor belt and a light-up searchlight. The set also includes a dump truck and tilting hopper train car to load and unload rocks.
Like mentioned in another reviews this takes the worlds smallest Phillips head screwdriver. First night we got it my son couldn’t play with it because we had no screw driver that small. The following day we bought a glasses screw driver just to find out the train has one speed, wide open and train will not make a single loop around the track without falling off. Do not buy this unless you like irritation and disappointment.
Well, I don't know how it works because it requires the smallest possible Phillips screwdriver ever made in order to put the batteries in the train. One of those teeny`tiny ones that I suspect they use for eyeglasses or something very TINY!
I wanted to like this set, but the quality of the electric locomotive is pretty poor. It worked for about 5 minutes, then it appears a single human hair was sucked up in the exposed gear assembly (why it's exposed I'm not sure) and the engine stopped running. Save your money and get a real HO scale model train set, they're only 20 bucks more.
