Great, durable starter set. Pieces are solid and include everything to get started. Most of the starter kit price goes into a high quality engine, cars, connectors and transformer. No additional scenery or additional track. These would need to be additional purchases. If you are planning to keep this for a number of years and is not a "throw away" toy, then this is a good choice. My two (almost three) and four year old love the set. We purchased the upgraded version with the bell and whistle so make sure you get the set with the train sounds.

This is a good quality set. It is easy to assemble and get started, and the pieces, especially the locomotive, feel durable. I only have two "beefs" with it. First, with just the oval track, it gets boring quite quickly, just watching go round and round. It would have been nice if the starter set included some scenery accessories, alternative track configurations, etc. to "liven it up." Second, the directions are pretty vague and not comprehensive. Good luck trying to figure out how to dump out the coal from the coal box. Even though they talk about it, the description refers to buttons out of the blue without context so you can't figure out what they are saying.

It's a solid buy, but you'll need to quickly follow up with more track and accessories to keep you kids interested.

This train set is awesome! The train sounds are so realistic! I bought this set for my 4 year old son for Christmas. He was so excited, we set it up immeadiatley and he plays with it constantly. This toy is very well made ,however, the coupler on the tender wasn't working. I had no problems getting it fixed with the warranty through lionel and they're customer service was awesome, they still are an American company even though their trains are made in China(still the same quality as their classic Amercan made counterparts). They truely stand by their product, and customer satisfaction is clearly a priority.
The recommended age for this toy is 12, however, it is totaly appropriate for a child age 3 and up as long as a parent plays with the child to help set it up and re-rail cars. My 4 year old had no problems operating the transformer or the uncoupler/dump car track activator. If your looking for a great classic gift that any child will have hours of fun using their imagination and developing problem solving skills this is it! Lionel has really taken a classic and made it better with technology. Parents will also have endless fun playing together with their kids. Awesome!!!

Lionel endures as a key player in the manufacture of electric trains. In recent years, Lionel (along with many other manufacturers) has striven for detail and added play value in its train sets and accessories. Commonly found among today's electric trains are bright graphics, a great variety of prototypical road names, a widening range of rolling stock, realistic track, and computer-chips that simulate a range of appropriate sounds (in addition to the smoke and whistles that traditionally have accompanied model trains) encountered in the departure/running of today's various engine models. Lionel's products are solid, most Lionel trains can operate in tight spaces, and are big enough to enjoy/handle (unlike N-gauge or HO-gauge trains, which more often are sought out by the serious modeler).

This Lionel set is complete and ready-to-run; Amazon's price is unbeatable and this set is sophisticated enough for both the seasoned model train operator and for the newbie. This set is best for an intermediate level [10 years-old or above] model train operator, as the amazing engine is more than a toy. Details abound in the scaled modeling of the items found in this set. Moreover, the digital sound chip implanted in the engine/its tender car affords the operator the pleasure of hearing the sounds of a chuffing engine ready to depart, crew talk prior to departure, and other sounds en countered in the operation of a steam engine. The fasTrack furnished with the set looks highly realistic and offers a basic layout; additional track, switches, and crossings can be purchased. The 80-watt transformer [included in this set] is quite adequate and will power one engine, cars, and many accessories.

This is a high-quality set. Nothing is cheap in Lionel world but these kits are a great way to get a lot of nice equipment at a bargain price. The engine, tender, and transformer are alone worth the kit price. I was not expecting a Lionel set to be made in China, but I suppose that is how the price is kept low these days. The quality seems good enough, though.

Petty but annoying gripes:
The instructions are inadequate. For example, there is no explanation for wiring the uncoupler push button. It wasn't until I realized the terminal I was connecting to on the uncoupler made no connection to anything else that I resorted to getting out a voltmeter to find out to where the switch was supposed to connect. It wasn't obvious and I think that part will cause trouble for those folks who are not into troubleshooting.

I had to use Google to find better instructions for the tender sound controls. There is a volume control I discovered, but I could find no mention of it in the provided instructions. Instructions for the tender on Lionel's site filled in the blanks for me. The instructions also refer to a lumber car when a coal car is what comes in the set. Not a big thing, but not a big confidence builder that the instructions are meaningful.

I have grandchildren, so thankfully I can use that as an excuse as to why I bought this set. They love it and I get to supervise and be the "expert". The included "diorama" is a nicer touch than I expected. Kids like to see the train disappear into and reappear out the other side. The smoke works well and the sounds emitted by the train sounds just like engines chugging, bells clanging, or idling at the yard. There are voices, too, which sound very real. These sounds can be turned on or off, if desired, quite easily.

I'm not regretting this purchase at all.
