The looks of the train set are very realistic. The way the engine and tender are dezigned is very poor. They use 6 stiff wires between the two pieces that derail both pieces. The plastic pin between them broke very easily as well as other pieces from the engine and the wire plugs fell off trying to unplug them. The quality of the cars with the set are made much cheaper that the extra cars I bought seperately. All made by Bachmann. I am very disappointed in the quality of this purchase.

I received my train set and set it up. I am very experienced with model train sets, my Locomotive ran for a few minutes then broke.
There is something wrong with this specific train set, all me other trains still run fine after owning them for years. This one broke after running around the track a few rounds, Do not buy this specific train set, there is something wrong with the locomotives, I saw a lot of people complaining about this same issue on this same trainset.

DO NOT BUY THIS

This train set was proclaimed "one of the top three Christmas presents ever" by my son. It is easy to assemble the track, easy to connect the train, and easy to hook up power. We were up and running in no more than ten minutes. The little engine is a thing of beauty and I admit to driving it even when the kids are not around.

What cost this train set a star is my concerns about quality. Within a couple of days the engine sometimes would need a little push to get it started. Later on its motion became extremely rough with a lot of vibration. I thought I would have to return it.

Well, after a little internet research, I discovered a process called "quartering the drivers" which I do not recommend for non-mechanically-inclined people. Basically you have to align the drive rods on one side of the engine to be 90 degrees offset from the rods on the other side. After doing this (aligning by eye, not with a jig), the engine's smooth operation was restored. Obviously this should not have been necessary for years, if ever, had the engine been better made.

After less than an hour of running the train the motor stopped working. Sending to Bachmann for repair/replacement. Looks very nice but quality not up to normal Bachmann standards.

I gave this to my son for his birthday. After spending extra $$ on getting a table to set it all up on, it worked for less than a week. Very cheap materials, and now it just plain quit. I've been trying to get my kids interested in things other than video games (like trains and rockets). I find it very sad that they will probably not like these types of once cool hobbies because the stuff being made nowadays like this box of garbage is nothing but frustration and a huge turn-off when it breaks and just quits working. Do not buy this or I can guarantee you will not be happy. Sorry to have to say these negative words, but hopefully it will help someone else not waste hard earned dollars. I wish there were negative stars for this. Now I have to waste time trying to return it. (maybe it's just not worth that either)

Like some of the other reviews, I am too disappointed. Out of the box 2 of the wires on the 4 wire plug were broken so the train was unusable from the start. After a good look over, this set, imho, is not up to Bachmann standards. Very cheaply made. It is going back to Amazon for a refund.

the E-Z track that came with the set up with easy but was harder to put together than i thought. the passenger cars are easy to put on the track however, it is a bit difficult to put the big train on the tracks because of its size and weight.

i only gave this train set a 2 star review instead of a 4 or 5 star review is because the train stopped working after one hour of use. i i sent it to the manufacturer for repair. now i just have to wait for them to fix it and send it back in great working condition.

i might end up putting this train in a display case once i get it back since it stopped working on me and i do not want that to happen again.

because of this issue, i would suggest buying an extra train or two to use for if something goes wrong. and having a secondary smaller train would be good for use in setting up the track.
