Easy Setup and Transformer Operation

Designed for easy use, Santa's Flyer O-Gauge Train Set features a powerful maintenance-free motor. For out-of-the-box operation, it comes complete with a PowerMax transformer to control forward, reverse, and neutral operation. The eight curved and three straight FasTrack track pieces, along with a FasTrack terminal section, fits together to create a 40-by-60-inch oval and the train cars attach to create a 46-3/4-inch long train. When you're done, the track pieces and train cars pack up quickly and easily for storage.

Realistic Details and Festive Enhancements

This train set is highly detailed with festive colors and seasonal designs like candy cane stripes on the three-dome tank car and seasonal illustrations of stars, snow, and Santa's sleigh. The boxcar plays Christmas music, enhancing the theme even more. The die-cast locomotive body features a metal frame and trucks.

Favorite features include puffing smoke, an operational headlight, and a realistic air whistle in the tender to complete the authentic look and feel of a powerful O-gauge locomotive.

Expand Your Set

To extend your set, consider adding pieces like Santa's Flyer Hot Cocoa Three-Dome Tank Car and Santa's Flyer Animated Gondola (both sold separately).

The Santa's Flyer O-Gauge Train Set is backed by a manufacturer's limited one-year warranty. See owner's manual for details.

Overall, this is a nice set for someone who wants to put a train around the tree. If you want to have a set that you can expand, I recommend that you consider a more-expensive set. The main negative that I have on this set is that Lionel includes a low-power PowerMax transformer. This has enough power to run this set, but if you add track or accessories then you'll need a bigger transformer like the CW80 which costs around one hundred dollars. Here's what I see as the pros and cons:

Pros - looks good; has headlight, smoke, whistle and lighted caboose; fastrack is a nice track system; can add lots of Lionel accessories; Amazon price of two hundred ten dollars is a respectable price.

Cons - weak transformer; Christmas music boxcar needs a 9v battery and the on switch is on the bottom of the boxcar.

10/2014 Update - In 2013 Lionel started to produce basic remote-control electric trains called LionChief. Running a train with a remote is more fun than doing so from the transformer. I still like this set, but take a look at the LionChief sets before you buy. This set is a traditional transformer-controlled set.

This is our second train we have purchased over the past 14 years. I read all the reviews on all the trains & it came down to this one. Most of the cons listed for this train weren't substantial enough for me to rule it out.
I am so glad I chose this train. My 4 yr old & 13 yr old love it.
Let me list the things that were MOST impressive to me:
1. It doesn't come with cheap, plastic track like so many do. (and all the aggravation that comes with those cheap tracks)
2. It has the remote controller so the speeds, whistle & directions can be controlled very easily.
3. It is electric powered...so no changing batteries every week.
4. The Christmas music is not high pitched & overbearing on the ears. The music is actually enjoyable.
5. It has a whistle, a headlight & the caboose lights up.
6. The high speed setting really IS FAST!!!
What I do NOT like:
1. The smoke is so extremely light that you really have to focus to see it.
2. I did NOT realize that although the bell sound button is on the remote control, this particular train does NOT actually have the bell...you have to purchase & add that.
3. It is fairly loud when running the train at full speed.
Seriously, though...it's a great train.

I bought this train set to enhance the holidays for my daughter and found myself caught up in the nostalgia. I added 6 10 inch straight track sections and screwed it down to a christmas village display I made. There are tabs under each track if you want to attach additional wires for an even spread of power throughout the track. You can solder these or use connectors you can buy at home supply store like I did. There is absolutely no power loss from additional track as others indicated. I will though upgrade in the future to a higher output transformer as I add more accessories and use the 40cw it comes with for auxiliary needs. The box car plays random short clips of Xmas music but the speaker is a little loud. Yes you need to turn it upside down to switch it off and on but I just choose to leave the car off the main track and place it a small section of auxiliary track for display and not worry about. I also bought a chessie locomotive with crew sounds and caboose and these run great too with this transformer. The whistle is a bit weak at slow speeds but the faster you go the louder it seems to get. Kinda like a whistle in the distance. Smoke is also low output at low speeds and not much better at fast pace. Don't keep the smoke switch on unless drops of fluid are in the reservoir or it will ruin the smoke box. A bit pricey but very cool addition and should last a long time with care. The track can be cleaned with a lionel clean and lube kit or you can clean it with some rubbing alcohol. Same with the train wheels. Don't forget the gears and axles need periodic oiling. There are many videos online to assist with the maintenance. Buy with confidence it's a great product.Read more ›

Fun train set, One minor problem, switch for music on boxcar is on the bottom of the car, poor design, should be on one of the ends.

I ordered this train on Amazon because all the stores around me that carry trains were out. 2 day shipping was very reasonable and showed up as advertised. The train was easy and quick to set up on christmas eve and the kids loved it. Everything worked. Great starter set. My only disappointment was when I saw Made In China. I hope my kids take up the hobby for my sake.
