If you want it to run beyond the year you get it, do not buy any Lionel Holiday Train Set. I bought the Holiday Tradition Express set four years ago and it worked fine under the tree until this year. Now the thing does not work. I spoke to Lionel customer service and guess what - the set has been discontinued with no spare parts available. The service centers do not work on them. No refunds, no parts, no luck. It cannot be fixed at any price, so now I have a nice paperweight that looks like a holiday train. The kids are soooo disappointed not to see this running under the tree this year. How can an American icon like Lionel be such rip off artists by making such cheap (but still very expensive) toys?!?! I mean the run time on my set was maybe 20 - 30 times over the last four years just at Christmas time, and now the thing does not work with no way to fix it. However good the set looks, only purchase it if you want to ultimately waste your money! The irony here is that the supposed icon in model trains makes complete junk while another "no name" holiday train set I have has worked great for 20 years running. It is infuriating and sad at the same time that model electric trains are now considered overpriced throw aways by the so-called leader. I say save the couple hundred bucks and buy another brand of train!

We bought this a couple of years ago as an 'around the tree' train for Christmas. The track fits perfectly with aa assembled diameter of just under 5 feet. The train itself is fairly large, each car is about the size of a quart jar or a bit bigger. Don't have any problems with it derailing or the carts unlatching. The kids love it and I catch my hubby playing with it fairly often too. It's plastic so we don't expect it to last forever.

Our only complaint is that it eats batteries like crazy. It will go through 6 C batteries in about a day (or less) if you actually play with it. Unplugging the battery compartment from the engine helps a little when it's not in use but they still don't last long. I'd advise anyone thinking about using it long term to purchase the optional 9.6v battery pack. Or make sure you have some rechargeable C's on hand. The way the battery compartment is configured the AA with adapters don't really fit well and there's just not enough power in them to pull the load.
