3.0 out of 5 stars Test it out before Christmas, December 14, 2011
This review is from: Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer Train Set - G-Gauge (Toy)
I got this at an after Christmas sale at Bed Bath and Beyond for a great price. Saved it until next Christmas morning only to find that it would go for a while and stop. Turns out that was just half dead batteries, so a quick fix. It then went around the track three times really good and then stopped and had a grinding gear sound inside. So much for Christmas morning fun. I took it to a train store and they were no help. I had to deal with Lionel over the phone. Send the locomotive back and then get a new one. THIS Christmas I got it out again and so far the kids are having a ball with it. It's true that it's not the easiest thing to put together. An adult will have to snap the track pieces together and sometimes they don't stay snapped very good. The black wheels on a black track also can be frustrating for a child to make sure everything is on track. I've given my kids a small flashlight to play "conductor" and check all the wheels before taking off. The kids are having a great time putting just about every toy that can fit in the flat bead car for a ride. When it works, it's great, otherwise I'd give it only one star.
