This review is from: Lionel Little Lines Polar Express Train Set (Toy)
We have purchased numerous Geotrax sets for our twin boys who LOVE trains - we thought this would be a great train since it is a Lionel product and looks like the same concept as Geotrax. I guess our expectations were too high. Our boys love the headlight, whistle, and realistic sounds. However, this train cannot pull the cars up inclines and derails when turning corners and going downhill. Within 5 minutes of setting the train set up I knew I would be calling customer service or returning the set. Unfortunately, after reading the reviews for other Lionel Little Lines products I am not confident that Lionel customer service will be helpful. My best advice would be to skip this product and buy Geotrax.
Of note - this Lionel train does work on the Geotrax tracks and vice versa. The different tracks will not snap together but the trains are interchangeable. Unfortunately, this does not fix the problem since the engine seems to be the issue.
