This train set is really an awesome one. It has all the sound you could expect from areal train plus lights and a big track. The locomotive is a die cast metal model and puffs smoke from its chimmney the smoke follows the motor sound and increases in speed as the train speeds up. It also has the sounds of a real crew and a train whistle. The lights in the locomotive, light car and caboose can turn on and the doors in the box car really open its the best gift for a train fan/lover or collector, no matter the age this will do!!!

I surprised my husband with this set for Christmas (yes boys never outgrow toys!). I spent a while researching different sizes and brands and customer reviews and decided to go with this train for it's traditional set of cars and realistic extra features, like all of the sounds it makes (horn, whistle, chugging, crew sounds, brakes), the light that works and the smoke which is so cute how it puffs out in little circles. It has been working fine, no probs (though note: to turn crew sounds on there is a switch on the bottom of one of the cars, took us a while to find that), and should be fun for years (and future children) to come.

The Lionel New York Central Flyer Train Set is a great value and wonderful starter set. The die-cast steam locomotive is a solid, durable runner that will last for years with proper care. It features operating headlight, smoke, and Trainsounds (chug effect, crew talk, whistle). The oval of Lionel Fastrack is easy to assemble and you can expand it with more track, switches, crossings, etc. There's a good variety of cars, including a coal tender for the locomotive, operating searchlight car, boxcar, gondola with removable load, and a caboose. Everything you need to get started is included! Whether you want a set for around the Christmas tree or the start of your own railroad empire, you can't go wrong with this train set. Suitable for ages 8 to 80!

I purchased this train set for Christmas for my two young grandsons. It is everything I hoped it would be as far as durability and great entertainment. The lights, sounds and smoke duplicate the real thing.
A good buy.

The (adult) person I bought this for absolutely loved it and began preparing a room in their house to keep the train set up in. The smoke worked, the track worked, all the pieces were included and worked as intended. This would make a great gift for someone who likes trains or the Lone Ranger. If the person is young, they will probably need someone older and patient to carefully read directions and help set it up. I plan to buy additional Lionel train accessories as future gifts.

I've bought now three of these lionel starter sets for boys aged 5-11. They are not simple toys, and you'll want a parent to supervise to make sure they don't get too rough and damage them, but these are absolutely heirloom quality sets. If taken care of, I can easily imagine my boys' grandchildren playing with these. They are expensive, but very high quality and built to last a lifetime so long as they're not abuse. That being said, they are tough and take quite a bit of play, I just wouldn't leave it out in the rain or drop it off the roof it you want it to last!

This set is well worth the investment in future fun. It is very reliable and easily assembled. It reminds me of the fun my brothers and I had for well over twenty years after we received a Lionel set in the mid 1950's. I wish I still had that set with the addiions we purchased over time. This set should last even longer and be passed onto the future of the family.

I thought I had checked everything both here and on Lionel website before purchasing.
Set arrived as described and is wonderful,
BUT
the train can run on the 0-27 track and that is what I thought it shipped with.
WRONG, comes with 0-36 and I have plenty of that track. I needed one track to run inside the other
I will now need to purchase more track!
