Great Starter Set Hours of Entertainment,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lionel Boy Scouts Of America O-Gauge Train Set (Toy)
In the words of my 8 year old boy scout son "Its really cool, and I really like the crane car. I also really like the figures in the engine". It's a good little started set and in its most basic form is really entertaining to a young O Guage railroader. As someone who has been collecting Lionel and O Guage trains for 30 years (got my first set at 3 at DT&I made by MPC) I can tell you I was really impressed with this set. The locomotive is die cast, and very well made and with a fair amount of detail. The graphics and colors of the set are spot on with those of the BSA, and the wording and significance of the numbers on the set really hits home scouting dogma and history. The bonus patch (BSA Approved for a brag vest) also is a very nice touch. If your boy loves scouting and wants a first train set don't hesitate on getting this one.
