Easy Setup and Remote Control Operation
Designed for easy use, the Polar Express G-Gauge Train Set runs on 6 C batteries (not included). You can also operate the train with a 9.6-volt rechargeable battery (not included). The set includes an RC remote controller (requires 2 AA batteries - not included) that's easy for little hands to use. The 12 curved and 4 straight track pieces fit together to create a 55-by-72-inch oval, and when you're done, they pack up quickly and easily for storage.
Retro Detailing for Life-Like Experience
This train is highly detailed with retro styling on its Berkshire steam locomotive, blue and red passenger coach, and observation car with a "disappearing" hobo for an extra surprise. Fixed knuckle couplers, a working headlight, and realistic setup and shutdown sequences complete the authentic look and feel of a powerful G-gauge locomotive.
Authentic Sounds and Whistles
Clearly marked buttons on the remote control let little ones move the train forward and backward, sound the whistle, ring the bell, and play "All aboard the Polar Express!" as the train chugs around the track. For added fun, The Polar Express G-Gauge Set comes with conductor and boy figures that can be positioned on top of the locomotive, tender, or passenger car.
More Polar Express Fun with G-Gauge Diorama
To expand your adventure and enhance your holiday displays, pair this train set with the colorful, two-sided Polar Express G-Gauge Diorama (sold separately) with tunnel portal openings.
The Polar Express G-Gauge Train Set is backed by a manufacturer's limited one-year warranty. See owner's manual for details.

I have not seen another 'G' scale set with better quality equipment and features for the price. The engine has built-in sound that makes a steam 'chuff' noise synchronized to the speed of the engine. It also makes a steam brake release noise when it stops. It has a bell sound and whistle that you can control from the R/C unit. It has 3 speeds in both forward and reverse directions. The speeds seems very prototypical. The speed is also momentum controlled - the train speeds up and slows down at a measured pace just like a real train. The detail on the engine is quite good for a 'toy' train.
I had the same experience with the included batteries as others - they barely moved the train for a few minutes and then conked out. I replaced the standard batteries with alkaline ones and it ran for about 10 hours before needing replacement. I have switched to a compatible 9.6v rechargeable battery that works great, is cheaper to run, and environmentally better.
The packaging states the set is for kids 4 years or older. Both my 4-1/2 year old and 2 year old can run the train with the R/C controller (and did not stop playing with it for almost a week). However they do not have the dexterity to couple the cars or snap the track together. I would guess that a 5 or 6 year old would be able to assemble and operate everything without adult help. They have banged the engine, thrown the controller, and knocked the coaches around quite a bit without any damage.Read more ›
I thought I'd get him a junky train for fun for Christmas. I figured it would last the season. Unfortunately, I picked up a cheapie at ToysRUs for $[...]. Not only did it break after one week, it was pretty cheesy. Cars didn't really hook together, battery hookup from the coal tender to the engine was junky, etc. I don't even know if I'll be able to get credit for the dumb thing since my daughter-in-law inadvertently threw the receipt away. But my grandson was nutty about the thing.
So I started a desparate search last night Dec. 19th, and everyone was out of the junkier trains. I did an extreme internet search and found nothing. By today, just about everyone was out of the better trains too. I finally had success at Target and got the Polar Express Battery Powered train G Scale. My grandson absolutely loves it and it is made so much better than the cheap ones. The cars securely hook together, it has 3 speeds forward and 3 reverse. My daughter-in-law is thrilled that it doesn't really make a big racket; just enough noise to please my grandson without irritating everyone else in the household. I am planning to get him two 9.5 v. battery packs and chargers so he won't run out of batteries. This train is definitely the hit of Christmas 2008.

Bought this for my 3 year old and even the adults couldn't get it working well. Would have ruined Christmas morning if w didn't also buy the Lego Duplo train.Published 7 hours ago by Amazon Customer
OK product. The train itself is very cool. Although doesn't have an on/off switch which is kind of odd. The tracks SUCK. Read morePublished 1 day ago by tullywork
