I am sure this is a train he will share with his children as well.

This was a Christmas present for my son, who is an Eagle, and loves trains.

In the words of my 8 year old boy scout son "Its really cool, and I really like the crane car. I also really like the figures in the engine". It's a good little started set and in its most basic form is really entertaining to a young O Guage railroader. As someone who has been collecting Lionel and O Guage trains for 30 years (got my first set at 3 at DT&I made by MPC) I can tell you I was really impressed with this set. The locomotive is die cast, and very well made and with a fair amount of detail. The graphics and colors of the set are spot on with those of the BSA, and the wording and significance of the numbers on the set really hits home scouting dogma and history. The bonus patch (BSA Approved for a brag vest) also is a very nice touch. If your boy loves scouting and wants a first train set don't hesitate on getting this one.

The set has very nice details. The engine is solid. However, quality control from the China-made Lionel BSA train set left much to be desired. The first tender car did not couple to other cars, and it the whistle did not work. Amazon sent a second set, the tender car coupled. However, the whistle did not work. It took the 3rd set sent by Amazon to get the proper working tender car. 5 stars for Amazon service, 3 stars for Lionel quality control. I wish that the set is still made in the USA, given the rising labor cost of China made products. I'd be willing to pay a little more for better quality control USA made products.

This is a follow up to the original review as of December 2013. We put away the train set after Christmas last year (used it only about 3 wks.) and just set it up this year for Christmas (2013). The train set runs fine, however, the whistle no longer works. What a frustrating experience! China quality control at its best.

Purchased this set just before Christmas and it was delivered on time and just as expected and in perfect condition. (thats important with a collectable train set). Operation of this train was also just as expected with a lionel set...you just expect the product to work perfectly. This set will just add to my collection that started over 30 years ago.

This Lionel Boy Scouts of America train set, was THE DEAL for Christmas 2011! Like all Lionel "starter sets",it has everything included to set up a temporary layout,right on the floor or rug, or on a table top.The snap together Fastrack system is rugged and reliable,and is used by many serious model builders and collectors(myself included)It would be a great troop fundraising vehicle,that any scout,or FORMER SCOUT, would love to own, at a price that is well below dealer cost!

Heavyweight engine runs well, both fast & esp. slow, which is important. Plastic cars are well made & look good. Easy to assemble, easy to run. Even my Fireman (wife) didn't derail it when she ran the train (1st time running one, ever!) Headlights, caboose, BSA logos, this set is great, esp. if there is a connection to Boy Scouts of America. Train is easy to handle for novices, & operates well for old-timers.
Purchased to start grandson off right, but I had fun with it too, even at 71!
A good value at the retail of 300, it can often be found with substantial (20-30%,+) discounts.

I decided to get a Lionel starter train set when I saw the 2013 end of year sale prices. I got the BSA set since it has six cars in all, one more than most. I never had one as a child but my grandfather would set one up at Christmas in the basement. I bought it for my wife and I to have around the Christmas tree. Well, the cars are very nice with lots of detail. I bought some extra fastrack to match the few track pieces that came with the set. The train works so smoothly and the big power supply, a CW-80 80-watt transformer (forward, neutral and reverse), functions well and is big and heavy. The transformer on sale and the track bought separately would cost what I paid so the train was free. My wife loves it and especially the realistic train whistle that sounds like the big train horns. The quality of the cars was more than I had hoped for.

This is the best Lionel Starter train set for the money. I have seen this set in the Hobby Stores for well over $200. It comes with the Fastrack tracks, but it will run on the traditional Lionel track as well at half the cost. I got this for my 10 year old son for Christmas and he loves it. He built his own tunnel out of the shipping box it came in. I do not know exactly what it is about boys/men and trains, but both my son and I love them. I remember getting my first Lionel train set about his age and I still have mine and I have shared it with my son. I am sure this is a train he will share with his children as well.

Fastrack Review:
The Fastrack is nice, but I think it is a little more difficult to put together than the traditional Lionel track, but it is very sturdy and it will not come apart very easily.
