5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with this set.
Train runs extremely well for it's size. It accelerates smoothly and runs well at low speeds. It also can manage reasonable inclines without slowing too much. The trains are nicely detail for n scale and everything worked out of the box.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many problems too soon
Train arrived in a timely manner and assembled easily. However, within a couple hours use one of the drive mechanisms on the locomotive broke. I removed it since was non-essential and it would still be able to be used at Christmas time to entertain the grand kids. Not much longer the transformer started acting bad; it would only go on one speed no matter how you tried...

This review is from: Bachmann Industries Durango and Silverton - N Scale Ready to Run Electric Train Set (Toy)
Train arrived in a timely manner and assembled easily. However, within a couple hours use one of the drive mechanisms on the locomotive broke. I removed it since was non-essential and it would still be able to be used at Christmas time to entertain the grand kids. Not much longer the transformer started acting bad; it would only go on one speed no matter how you tried to slow or speed it up. The transformer is a random problem because the next day it worked, next day it didn't....................

I am not satisfied. I will return it all to Bachmann since it is less than a month old. I am curious as to what Bachmann will do.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Engine was broken., February 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bachmann Industries Durango and Silverton - N Scale Ready to Run Electric Train Set (Toy)
When the box was opened one of the rods on the wheels was not attached to both wheels so the train would stall every second or so on the track. The engine had to be returned to Bachmann and I had to pay the shipping cost. I received an email from Bachmann that it might be fixed in 4 to 6 weeks. How to spoil a Christmas morning. I don't know if they plan on charging me for the repair and the return.

This was the second time we purchased a Bachmann product and it didn't work properly out of the box.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be really nice with a few modifications!, December 7, 2013

Not really happy with the connections on this train, it's really cute and runs the track good, but may have to send it back, seems the connections for the engine and the coal car are not fitting well, if my husband can't fix it, then we will send it back. Can't figure out why they made that part of the train so cheaply,

I love the set. It was a shame that it did not include an open car though. Maybe they make them, but being new to trains, i haven't one yet.

My grandson loves this train set, Daddy put it on a 4x8 sheet of plywood and screwed down the tracks for him, so it can't be messed up by baby sister.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have an issue, December 19, 2013

This review is from: Bachmann Industries Durango and Silverton - N Scale Ready to Run Electric Train Set (Toy)
The set is really nice. It set up easily and looks great. There is a problem with either the plug that attaches to the power pack or the receptacle on the power pack. It runs only when I press it. I have to see how Bachmann handles the service before I can give a final review. Any product can have a glitch, but overall it is just what I expected

Thank you for a good quality train. It was a hit at our Christmas party. It is kind of hard to get on the track but once there it stays there pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starter set., January 9, 2014

This review is from: Bachmann Industries Durango and Silverton - N Scale Ready to Run Electric Train Set (Toy)
This small layout takes up little room and runs perfectly. For someone with limited space who really enjoys model railroading this is a perfect way to go!
