This is Lego's deluxe starter set. The train is nicely crafted and the set has a ton of playability. The engine is a European-style, yellow and gray, electric freight engine. The rolling stock includes a flat car, tank car and container car. The set also has a red full-length container, a yellow half-length container, two small automobiles (that load onto the flat car), green container gantry, a semi with container trailer, and four mini-figures. It includes 8 pieces of straight track, 16 curved, two switches, and 16 pieces of flex track. It also has all the necessary Power Function (PF) accessories (motor, infrared control, and battery box). The battery box is a new part; it holds six AAA batteries and sits inside the engine. If you don't like changing out AAAs, you can opt for the more expensive lithium-ion battery and DC charger available directly from Lego. Also, Lego has designed the engine such that you may add a set of lights (routing the wire under the arched red bricks). The lights (8870) are also available directly from Lego and they connect neatly with all of the PF batteries. That said, there really isn't anything extra that you need to get with this; if you are buying this as a gift for your child or grandchild, the only extras you need to remember are nine AAA batteries.
What do the kids think? Of course, they are all over it. There is a lot you can do with the set. It is a fun build (some kids need help, some don't). The train can go sufficiently fast that it derails.Read more ›
One, the two small cars that came with it could have been a little better. One of the car, blue and black, is put together in a way that it easily falls apart. A few more interlocking pieces to make it more secure would have been nice.
Battery box is screwed on with tiny screws. Lego isn't exactly a toy for infants because of the small pieces so for the life of me I don't know why it has to have a childproof battery box that is cumbersome to replace batteries. It should be snap on and off easily. I guess you can always get the rechargeable battery but that's going to add to the cost.
The remote control was not high quality. You can touch it slightly and it would register, the "click" doesn't exactly mark the point where you change from one speed to the next. When you put the train on first speed, it doesn't move, you have to click it 2 or 3 times.
Overall I like the train, just wished it was a little better.
It has more track than the red commuter train, but it would still be nice to have more track..,.which actually is harder to find and quite expensive, with not so great reviews.
Great train, our son is in heaven!
The design of the loco is very Euro-like; similar to electric locos I have seen in Germany, Austria, etc.
The cars all have a fair amount of detail, and it all helps to add to a reaslistic set.
The semi and crane are neat, and typically something you always need to buy as an accessory train set in years past.
The power functions work well, have a nicely disguised on/off switch, and the train has very nice speed and power. Think Z06 'vette for a LEGO train.
Track - and LOTS of it conmes with this set! I am used to the little oval with 16 curves and 2 or maybe 4 straight sections. This set has what seems to be twice the track. Many more options for layouts.
The not "as" good:
There are what seem to be 10 little instruction booklets - I liked the older LEGO books (think 6080 castle set) that were larger and not as easy to lose.
A lot of the cargo container walls and other parts are now "molded" single parts, whereas older LEGO sets had a lot more common parts. Less ability to be creative with re-building into something else. I am sure this lowers the cost of the set, but also lowers re-play value for the younger fans.
Difficult to open/swap out batteries on the power functions due to location in the train as well as little screws on them. Be prepared with what seems like a pallet of batteries and jeweler screwdrivers.
No working headlights in the train - part of the fun is running at night... but now I need to find some headlights like on my 7745 high speed train set.Read more ›
