2.0 out of 5 stars Train good Quality bad, February 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bachmann Royal Blue Ready To Run Electric Train Set N Scale (Toy)
Now I'm not a model train fanatic, I wanted something to add to a Christmas village that I purchased during the holidays(Did not get the Department 56 or Lemax due to space. I went with the houses sold at CVS stores. Much smaller) I thought about adding a train to the village. After I got the Bachmann Royal Blue. I was surprised at how small "N" gauge was. Anyway I set the train up to check it out and for about 15 minutes it was fine and then I started to see the tender was having a problem with staying on the track. I finally realized one of the wheels would come out of it's housing and I would pop it back in but it continued to come out . Also the rod on the left side of the train came off at the front of the locomotive(hard to explain). So instead of trying to fix it. I sent it back with a detail of the problem so hopefully Bachmann can check their quality control(a joke when it comes to Chinese made products)but at least I gave Bachmann an opportunity to check this out.

I'm not angry about this. Things happen. I thought the train was nice in the way it looked and I liked the train's detail. My biggest question is how good can a product so small work over the long haul by very nature of the size of it's parts. I'm simply amazed at that size. I can't even phantom "Z" gauge.

Bottom line I would give Bachmann a try again. I'm going to wait till next Christmas season. If another problem then I would scratch them off my list of companies to buy their products. I hope I was objective and helpful to others .
