Great train set.
Steven Turner
Finally, after about 10 times using it, one of the engine's metal cranks for turning the wheels broke!
Brian M. Weir
I have discovered that the train works best when the track is laid out on hard surfaces and floors.

I've read all the other reviews. I've been wanting to get into the hobby for over ten years. Every time I regain interest, I read reviews from people who have bought the same product I'm looking for. I usually allow them to scare me off. This time the "Overland Limited" caught my eye.
I didn't want to spend a bunch of dough on something I may loose interest in or that would give me a hard time. After reading the reviews I was a bit apprehensive. In fact I put off buying it for nearly a month before I just figured that the complaints were all from people who might not have read or followed the directions.
Some of the wheel assemblies had fallen off in transit, just like the included information mentions. They are very easy to replace and there's been no problems with that happening since.
The track snaps together quite simply and if you follow the directions and check for smoothness at the joints when you're done, you won't have derailments.
There was a complaint that the freight cars looked like toys. Well, they are toys. If you want one that doesn't look like a toy then plan on either doing some weathering or paying a lot more money for something else.
The only thing I wish was a bit better is the headlight. I think it should be just a bit brighter. Everything else is fine with me and I'm tickled pink to have it.
Hope this helps you,
Ted

The Bachmann HO Overland Limited Train Set is an absolutely beautiful train set if all you want to do is look at it. If you want to operate the Overland Limited Set or play with it, BUY SOMETHING ELSE: The wheels fall off and will not stay on as the train navigates the snap-fit tracks built for it. The Train does not get around the entire loop of tracks without losing nearly all its wheels on the main car as well as the accompanying nine cars. Flipping the switch on the terminal rerailer amounts to a derailment because the wheels can't handle turns. The worst part is the merchants selling this product know this and will not accept returns or issue refunds or exchanges once the item has been opened. It is a very expensive Train Set which is frustrating especially when I think about the fact that I purchased it as my kid's first really expensive toy for $198.60 and my kid didn't play with it for more than five minutes before the wheels fell off. Mind you, this is just while he is watching the train navigate the snap-fit tracks.

I bought this train for my husband for Christmas. He has always been a fan of HO-sized trains but hasn't owned one since his youth. The detail on the train is very fine and accurate. The train tracks were easily assembled, but you do need to pay attention to ensure the tracks like up well (not difficult, but we suggest that you run your finger along the top of the rails as we had 2 instances where a rail had popped-up above the adjoining rail, which was easily fixed by disconnecting and carefully reconnecting.)

This is a lovely train with a working headlamp and smoke. However, the train would not be a good fit for very young children due to the fine and somewhat fragile detailing on the cars.

Lovely...

Purchased the Bachmann Overland Express Limited for my 9yo. Simple to assemble and get running. The large and highly detailed locomotive runs well and pulls all the rolling stock around the oval at a comfortable speed. This was our first time with liquid smoke and enjoyed this feature tremendously. Upon unpacking, be careful to snap in place all the wheels/axles that may have popped off the rolling stock during shipping. My son has enjoyed this train set and has spent many hours with it over the course of the month. I would not recommend this set for much younger than 8yo as the details are a quite delicate and re-railing the locomotive requires a bit more dexterity and patience than most 7 year olds possess.

A few hints when building on to this set: When adding additional track, it is recommended to use 22" radius or larger track just due to the length of the locomotive. If you do choose to use 18" radius track, do not create tight "S" curves without a straight piece between the opposing curves. We have gotten the over-sized locomotive to work smoothly with 18" curves but with some amount of track massaging and careful attention to close the gaps between track sections. A simple, yet visually unappealing way to get around all this is to remove the rear truck from the locomotive which is attached by a single small phillips-head screw (the rear truck is located directly underneath the cab). One other item of note is that this locomotive cannot pull more than 5 rolling stock up an incline if you wish to create an over-under figure 8 type track - most likely due to the amount of power put out by the power pack and not the locomotive drive motor.

Not sure why this set gets bad reviews. I received it today, set it up in no time on the kitchen table to test it. it works great. I read the reviews after I bought it and was all worried about the track until it arrived. the cars are fine, some of the wheels had come off during shipping but popped right back in place. out of all the sections, only 2 had to be reset to keep the wheels on track. Would I recommend this? Yes indeed.
